    No one is saying but he's entered in the third at Assiniboia Downs next week.

    A Rider fan behind me on the bus just said the last Banjo Bowl he was at was 2019 and hasn’t been to one since……

    Even when we’re both not very good it’s a great rivalry with two passionate fan bases. Go bombers!

    Agreed. But that '07 Grey Cup is kind of a big deal.

    It's one of the reasons I quit paying attention to the name of the party I vote for. I try to vote based on their current  form and the leaders ability to balance economic and social issues. I guess I would add environmental issues to that now.

    You are right. Perhaps better put the it's more the Liberals TALKING left and having no I mention of governing that way.  And that's what frustrates me about the current Libs and Trudeau. They talk left and spend money on that talk without real movement to the left. Often some of the movement left requires full commitment to work and even make economic sense. An example ? If you are moving away from oil wouldn't  it make sense to take the massive subsidies paid to the oil industry and put it into green infrastructure ?

    Because the Liberals are pro big business and Bay Street. They'll spend like crazy but won't hold Bay Street accountable for anything. They are maddening. Sometimes, when you're trying to be balanced to both sides, you end up screwing both sides.

    That's the beauty of Canada, you don't win without appealing to the middle so everyone is pretty close on most major issues. Not run by the crazy town types.

    Definitely thought BQ being there was pointless and would have been much better to give the other candidates a chance to give us something substantive. Not that it would have happened, but hearing Blanchette complain about the amount of time he received while not actually using the time because he had nothing relevant to say about the topic was especially annoying.

    The trouble with TPR is the Southern Health bunch won't test till they are violently ill. I'd love to know the real numbers.

    Glover is terrible. Hope she gets crushed in the leadership race because she clearly would be a disaster as Premier.

    This would be funny as all heck, Darwin strikes again, but I highly doubt this one.  I suppose it's possible but I've seen a  awful lot of it put on extremely expensive breeding  stock and have never heard of it.

    Only listened to a snip of it but there's got to be a better way to tell someone they out of time other then yelling at them.

    Exactly. I really don't think a single vote moved anywhere. Possibly  a few more will stay home .One of the reasons maybe is because there is no real reason for this election at this time. No burning issue that took the standing government down . Lots of things to vote on , economy,  environment, records,...... but all of that was in the last election and will be in the next election. It's hard for people to focus on when most are wrapped up in the 4th wave, kids going back to school, just getting by day to day......

    Debate was terrible. That format doesn't work. Blow up the consortium.

    I don't know if it was the moderating or just the format overall. I legitimately got a headache from it that has lasted until this morning. Didn't hear anything substantive from anyone really. Just launch a quick attack and then try to get a quick defense. I can't imagine that debate was useful for undecided Canadians that care about policy.

    My take on the debate : 
    Trudeau -  " No really, this time we will ACTUALLY  live up to our promises. "
    O'Toole - I'll bet he was an awesome Dodge Ball player as a kid cause he's still doing it on multiple important subjects.
    NDP  - Still struggling to be seen as a real alternative to the major 2 parties.
    Block - Why does everything always revolve around Quebec for them..............Oh yea, right. It was interesting to hear him actually voice that he didn't care about the rest of Canada or what happens there.
    Green - I really didn't hear anything concrete. Or any reason to vote green other than the ideal of a Green party.
    On the whole a pointless debate just like the election.
