Ocotber 25? Or this Thursday>

Really? Harper in Edmonton? I guess old Rahim Jaffer is closer to defeat than I realized.

The only way this can be interpreted is as a win for Linda Duncan. Harper hasn't visited a single riding yet that the PC's didn't think was "in play" and a potential gain/loss.

In October or September?

OMIGOD Harper is actually coming to Edmonton to try and save the seat of his Caucus Liaison. Bout time.

Is this a sign the Tories are a least mildly concerned about Edmonton-Strathcona? I don't think he visited last election...

Edmonton is a major city that every leader should be visiting at least once despite the fact it will likely go Tory across the board. I highly doubt Jaffer's seat will flip, but the PM's event should help shore up support. Is it true it is a CPC members-only event?

There's a rally in Edmonton every campaign. What are you people thinking?

And the PM should be off trying to win the winnables while his capable Alberta team handles the home front. Representation doesn't mean showing up and waving during election time. All the self-appointed democracy authorities dictate that to the rest of us all the time!

How bout some talk about the silencing of Dion's wife?
