Daylight is fading away

It’s getting to that time of year and that time in the campaign when it’s dark in the morning when I start working and it’s dark when I leave the office. However today was an extremely productive day for the Jim Carr campaign.

It started off bright and early with a radio interview at Stellas – a very popular Winnipeg restaurant – on CBC Information Radio with Marcy Markusa. She had all 4 candidates running in Winnipeg South Centre on the program. Click the photo below to find the link where you can listen to the interview; skip ahead to the 4:30 mark.

It was then off to burmashave (waving to drivers and talking with commuters at bus stops). Every election, the question gets asked what is ‘burmashaving’ or what is the origin of that phrase; every election I forget. Wikipedia isn’t very helpful, only offering this:

Then while Jim was at a ‘candi-dating’ session by the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce, I was spending the day in class (I foolishly thought that would be a good idea!) Finance for Non-Financial Managers is not my forte and it was definitely a tough day as there was social media posts and responses to go out during the day. Not going to lie, I was feeling just a tad stressed today.

I took some time out this evening to install some signs around the riding; it was nice to get out of the office and into the riding. We’ve only got 33 days left so every day it is important to get as much work done as possible. Tried my hand at some ‘artistic’ shots of our signs – how’d I do?
