Mair comes out in favour of proportional representation. #cdnpoli http://thetyee.ca/Opinion/2011/08/08/DocMair/
RT @claytoncubitt: You shouldn’t elect an anti-government partisan to run your government. You wouldn’t hire a Marxist to run your company.
+1 RT @nlamontagne Support good journalism in BC – I just added my donation: RT @TheTyee We’re raising $ to report on the #BC #election.
Countries are more democratic when they employ proportional representation.
@wicary Get back to me about electoral reform when business media stops posing as news. #journalism @09michael
@somecanuckchick @pushedleft Yup. Selectively choosing facts, using loaded language, priming and framing, shifting focus, etc #cdnmedia
@YukonGale Hypocracy maybe. More likely it’s ongoing media bias. Talking points are filteted and selected by business media.

@ugottabekiddin The big business media like the Globe & Mail and the National Post have won this election for the conservatives. IMHO

Holy, showdown, Batman. Dark skies. http://tweettheresults.ca/ #tweettheresults Are you ready, Canada’s Elections Act? #elxn41
Harper seeks to shift election funding in favour of the wealthy. Again. ‘Stephen Harper vs. Canada’ http://t.co/zsyTLxl @thetyee #elxn41
That is false. @nspector4 Canadians understand they are electing a PM, a government and an MP to represent them. @dgardner #elxn41
Wow. I actually find this @nationalpost article interesting. Social media does not… win elections http://natpo.st/eEadeC #elxn41 #cdnpoli
@shantelisima And Harper ordered the senate to stop a bill that was supported by elected officials. Contrary to his “principles”
@pathcrafters posts a TED talk on his blog about elections, apathy and community engagement http://goo.gl/YoQJd – talk by @meslin is awesome
The @nationalpost wants @pmharper to get elected. It has strategic coverage and a partisan narrative. They run #cpc talking points. #elxn41
My challenges with Rex Murphy: #5 he doesn’t want an election but then proclaims that the election is “unwanted, unwarranted and unwelcome”.
My challenges with Rex Murphy: #4 he complains about expedience in electoral communications, but he is, himself, a master sophist.
A good reminder by Mercer that, contra #cpc soundbites, an election is not “a dangerous and unnecessary” exercise http://t.co/b5Yq7XR #elx41
Been meaning to research Elections Canada Act to sort out the rules. I guess Harper should too. Still. http://bit.ly/gCMTu2 #cdnpoli
