Falling on his face






Apparently that was what iffy was worried about during the bus tour. Well it has been a fall on his face kind of tour which most people of ignored.


Iggy's summer tour a flop: poll

OTTAWA — The Liberal Express summer bus tour has been a flop, according to a new Leger Marketing poll.

At least it's failed if the plan was to introduce Michael Ignatieff to Canadians.

Less than one-in-ten Canadians say they know more about the Liberal leader now than when the tour began, and most of them are already Liberal supporters.

Of the 8% who say they know more about Ignatieff now, 59% say their opinion of him has improved, while 18% say it's worsened.

A total of 30% of Canadians still say they know nothing at all about the Liberal leader, with women and young people (under the age of 35) most likely to know nothing about him (36% and 34% respectively).

"The issue with Michael Ignatieff, prior to the summer, was that people really did not know who he was or what he stood for," said Dave Scholz with Leger Marketing. "Now near the end of the summer tour, we're finding that only 8% of people know more about him now than they did before. That's a pretty small number.

"And when you break it out, those are more likely to be Liberal voters. He's preaching to the converted."

According to the poll, done exclusively for QMI Agency, if an election were held today 37% of Canadians would vote for the Conservatives, 28% would vote Liberal, 16% would vote NDP, with the Bloc Quebecois and Greens getting 9% and 8% respectively.


I have been meaning to post this speech from the iffy tour. It is fairly bizarre. Apparently the Tories don't want minorities like me to vote. Thanks to my source in Thornhill where iffy spoke earlier this month.

Cops surveyed, agree SCRAP the gun registry

'... 2,410 of the 2,631 officers from across the country he surveyed in Blue Line magazine since last spring believe "inaccurate" data from the registry is affecting police safety in every province and territory.

The firearms database shows registered firearms and their owners, but Kuntz says the data doesn't tell police officers where the firearms are actually located.

There's nothing that says a firearm has to be in possession of the person who the gun is registered to as guns are never linked to an address in the system, says Kuntz who is an avid hunter.

"Newer policemen rely on databases for everything, and that could (mean their lives) someday," Kuntz said...'

In response to Wilson's comment:

Wilson hits the nail right on the head; "Kuntz says the data doesn't tell police officers where the firearms are actually located".

Because Long guns are unrestricted there are different rules, the only feasible way for the Long gun registry work as the police want is to class all legal guns as restricted. Hmmmm, class all legal guns as restricted; Oh boy, I believe I may have just unveiled a Liberal/NDP/Bloc hidden agenda.

Pass it on.
