Who Are We Supporting? 5 Replies

I assume that we will be supporting the Liberals in this riding.  Has this been a decision?  I read that I should not assume anything in Catch 22 and that each riding would be selecting the target…Continue

A group of dedicated Catch 22 "Walking Demonstrators" were out again today engaging voters at Lincolnfields Shopping Centre.  See lots of you tomorrow at NOON at the Sparks St Mall!

That's kind of funny John in its own perverse way.

John Baird supporter defaces Catch22 flyer and posts it on a bulletin board in an apartment complex. No idea who the culprit is but he has his own idea of what the margin was that Baird won by. 4948 is correct.

See you on THURSDAY at noon not Wednesday for Walking Demo on Sparks St Mall.

Thanks to all who are bringing flyers. More t-shirts available then too.

Hey All,

I was thinking that it would be useful to begin to use our resources and those available through project democracy to demonstrate the need for strategic voting to the general public. My main idea is that we should start putting up posters showing project democracy's projections for a close ridings. Literally have these all around the ridings showing that it is projected to be Lunn Retaining with May being a close second and a large vote share going red for example. What will happen then is that people going in to vote will be able to visually see what we are talking about in terms of the vote split and will make the decision for themselves.

I advocate doing this in every close riding. Posters up all over the place showing bar graphs with the estimated support for candidates.

Furthermore I think it would be useful to put together a youtube video (perhaps a slideshow or prezi) which shows 40 vulnerable ridings which were conservative or could become conservative due to a vote split. If we can get this type of video spread enough then it could become viral. Anyone game for trying this effort?

Wendy / Jenn,

I've just sent the latest and final piece of literature for the two ridings to Tracy Morey. Please contact her about getting copies.

I'd be interested, Wendy. I don't know what the state of the flyer situation, but I'm willing to help edit/design or get some help from artist friends if needed.

I would be willing to do some house to house flyer drop in this riding later on this week.  Anyone interested, and do we have flyers?  See you on Sparks St on Wed. at noon.
