The last round in the Vancouver knock-down starts at 7:30 on CBC

November 12th, 2008 · 6 Comments

We let Gregor Robertson and Peter Ladner go at each other one more time, with all kinds of fresh news unspooling at every moment.

Today, Mayor Sam Sullivan asked for a police investigation into who took the documents relating to the $100-million loan to the Olympic village builder, while all the councillors offered to take lie-detector tests to prove it wasn’t them.

I can’t imagine what’s going to happen next: A long-lost family member will show up and reveal the secret? Someone will awake from a coma?

Anyway, the answer to none of these questions will arise in the debate, but you will get to hear the two much-gored candidates talk about homelessness, affordable housing, transportation, crime, money and, yes, the famous loan.

CBC at 7:30

    Which is why I tuned to 90.5 FM, the Victoria CBC station,
    to continue the 40th anniversary of As It Happens and
    later, The Review.

    What a disappointing debate.

    They were like a couple of high school students, pointing fingers at each other…

    sigh.

  • It was an interesting debate. I look forward to your comments and impression from the questioner’s seat, Frances.

    Hey, I’m trying really hard to be serious here, Frances, but LOL!!!!

  • They don’t call it “the silly season” for nothing.

  • For my impression of the evening, see here: http://brentonwalters.blogspot.com/2008/11/last-mayoral-debate.html

    I enjoyed the debate, and I thought the finger-pointing was tolerable, even enjoyable at times. Sometimes politics is petty, and it’s informative to see candidates pushed out of their comfort zones (think McCain and his temper).
