It’s an odd and strange election here in SD&SG. With MP Guy Lauzon polling with over 60% support there is little doubt he will be re elected. The lack of pork delivered to the riding this term clearly shows that the Harper team feel no threat to SD&SG turning Red or Orange.
In fact even the Best Western, for the first time since CFN came on the scene back in 2009, has a Lauzon sign on its yard instead of the traditional Liberal candidate.
The one weakness Lauzon has is public speaking. He has zero ability to debate or talk on his feet.
One of his biggest assets has always been his wife Frances who is fighting a form of Cancer known as Lymphoma and being treated in Ottawa where most Cancer patients in this riding end up. His team recently lost the doyon of Conservative politics in the area, Judy Bobka.
Mr. Lauzon has been reported not being himself in the limited debates in spite of being escorted to area events by his “other wife”, his EA Eric Duncan.
Lucky for Mr. Lauzon his competition in this election is limp at best with a Liberal candidate who can’t gain support in the counties, and whose mail out shows a total disconnect with reality, and the NDP running a ghost in the form of one Patrick Burger whomever he is?
CFN wishes Mrs. Lauzon a speedy recovery. Her form of Cancer has a strong 5 year survival rate if caught early.
It should also be noted that while the newspaper with the largest viewership and market share in the riding CFN was not invited to the debate in Martintown and still has not recieved an invite for the Chamber debate.
Due to Chamber helper Mike Metcalfe harassing this reporter with two security guards at the last election we may not be able to cover the debate live this year and will be reporting this to Elections Canada.
Will you be changing your vote dear CFN viewers? Have you heard your local candidates speak?
