The last day of the campaign: No more revelations, just group hugs

November 14th, 2008 · 5 Comments

At last, a sane day. No more sworn affidavits, no more leaks from city hall incriminating this or that person.

Instead, people actually did some real campaigning and cheering each other up.

All the parties were out at the Burrard Bridge Burma-shaving with their signs. It was so crowded it’s a miracle no one fell into traffic, it sounds like.

Later in the day, both camps had little rallies for their campaign workers. I dropped by the Vision camp briefly at 10:30, where they’d lined up actors from Battlestar Galactica and environmentalists like Tzeporah Berman to join the full-house crowd of COPE/Vision people, including an awful lot of young volunteers. I couldn’t stay for Peter Ladner’s rally at noon, but saw people heading towards the campaign office for what I’m sure was another much-needed pep rally.

The Vision people are looking pretty happy and peppy these days, while the NPA has been telling its supporters that it’s a 50-50 race where every vote counts. Hmmmmm.

For those who consider themselves part of the BulaBlog cult, I’ll be out and about tomorrow, posting occasional blogs. Then I’m going to be on NW starting at 8 p.m., with the irrepressible Bill Tieleman and Daniel Fontaine.
