I've noticed that staff at Astral Media are unusually quiet / unresponsive regarding election matters. Or is that usual for media at election time?

Phil Johnson has been doing interviews with all the wannabees. And they covered "the Big Announcement" today, too. Was there something specific you thought they should be doing?

Apologies - I should have been clearer - I meant off-air, and with more personal communications channels.

Some staff are quite active on Twitter & Facebook - with personal accounts as well as the 'official' ones. None of them seem to be saying anything about the election, despite previously showing strong allegiances.

Did someone die and leave the Four Change group in charge. As far as I am concerned, half of the four people that they didn't target don't deserve to be re-elected, let alone some of the four chosen ones.

Only in their own minds.

Let's see. If I donate $100 to Four Change, then I would be supporting all four of their candidates, even though I might only like one of them. Also, it's almost like donating to a charity where you donate a buck and hopefully the child at the other end gets at least ten cents.

No thanks, I will donate directly to my candidates.

So can you share the name of the big employer so that those of us who choose to do not give our business to this company? Or at least PM me the name so I can make sure they don't get my business?


I would be interested also.

I called them out on 'starting a negative campaign by naming the 4 they wanted ousted before anything else'.

They told me that was not the case. So I went through announcements and reports and they were correct. (And trust me, I HATE being proved wrong).

They've never actually said they want Reid, Rule, Craig & Hodge gone - that part was added by our good friends at the Capital News.

Although it's not difficult to do the math. Particularly given their name. :-)

Why is Four Change quiet on the mayor's race, or do they think that Sharon is the right one. As far as I am concerned, leadership comes from the top and as long as she is our leader, we are in big trouble. That's not to say Walter is our saviour. I'm having a REAL tough time with the Mayor's choice.

My guess would be:

3 unqualified candidates.

1 incumbent that is not seen to have lead council well.

1 former incumbent, that is seen to have alienated a good portion of the community with his human rights tribunal issue.

Craig showed his true colours when he flip flopped on CD21. He is not a man of his word, and therefore not a man, he's a boy, a boy who is often late. Goodbye late little boy.

That business knows who they are and with that many employees, their name is bound to come out.

Note: other than the questionnaire, I was never contacted further by Four Change.

Many people thought I was part of Four Change or that I would be a likely choice. Thankfully this is not the case.
