Calgary Grit Endorsement


A lot of other blogs are rolling out their candidate endorsements, so I figured I'd jump into the mix. After reviewing all of the 308 307 Liberal candidates coast to coast, I have decided to officially endorse Bruce Benson from Selkirk-Interlake.

Mr. Benson has been making a name for himself with the media this election. Instead of door knocking, phoning, and meeting voters, Mr. Benson has decided to spend the election snowshoeing across his riding. I for one applaud Mr. Benson. Too many politicians are obsessed with the crass act of trying to reach voters; Mr. Benson has taken politics back to its roots, reminding us that what it's really all about.

Here are some of the highlight quotes from CPAC and Global stories I've seen on Mr. Benson over the past few days:

"I respect him for what he's doing. I don't really understand what it has to do with policy though."
-Voter in his riding

"Couldn't your time be better spent...meeting voters?"
-CPAC interviewer

Interviewer: "Are you dejected that polls show you under 10% in this riding?"
Bruce Benson: "No, real candidates face adversity. You don't quit when you're down in the polls. You don't quit when your feet are sore."


Hear, hear. All too many candidates who try to snowshoe across their ridings, give up when their feet get sore - but not Bruce. Because of this, I am very pleased to endorse Bruce Benson as the next MP in Selkirk-Interlake.

  • So now we know how the Liberals have come up with the money to fuel their uber-polluter jet - they've been siphoning gas from Bruce Benson's vehicle.

    So, CG, who are you really rooting for in that riding?

  • Question. If Ramson isn't running this site, who is?

  • Selkirk-Interlke will show their usual distain for their incumbant (it's gone to 4 different parties in the last 4 elections) will elect Ed Schreyer who they will cheerfully dump in the next election.

  • That is so funny, it hurts my sides. Who says the Conservatives have a lock on crazy candidates.

  • That guy has pretty good hair, I will give him that.

    Glad you're keeping your sense of humour so well Bart.
