Ho, boy, a billion dollar bridge if you vote Conservative! The Conservatives are taking these by-elections seriously, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise:
The Harper government promised yesterday to build a new $1-billion bridge between Montreal and the South Shore, just three weeks before a by-election in a suburban riding that would directly benefit from the new link.
Not to be outdone, this morning Liberal candidate Roxanne Stanners promised that, if elected and if the Liberals form the next government, the Liberals will use tax dollars to buy every voter in St. Lambert a pony.
How you gonna top that, Mr. Harper! Unicorns? They're mytical, so ha!
And that loud thump you hear from the West is thousands of Reformers banging their head on a wall.
UPDATE: Breaking News! I'm ready to call this race now for the NDP, with the promise this morning by its local candidate to buy the residents of St. Lambert a stairway to heaven. It's over folks. Recommend this Post on Progressive Bloggers
