Driving across the prairies these past few days have reinforced the idea that each region/province is very different in how they approach politics. Perhaps it is because of the length of this election campaign or perhaps it is just the ideological differences from province to province, but you can figure out the political slant of each riding as you drive through. Driving through Western Manitoba through to Eastern Alberta, I didn’t see very many political signs. Those I did see were predominately Conservative, not that this was a big shock. What was impressive to see were these pockets of Liberal joy in both Edmonton and Calgary, and then of course they were everywhere I was in BC.
I’m not entirely sure how many ridings I drove through this past week, but I do have a longer post coming with some selfies & a final tally of my travels. I also will have a post on the Globe and Mail debate from last week and the French leader’s debate that happened tonight. Both of which I missed because I was traveling. Like I’ve mentioned, serious withdrawal. Looking forward to catching up on everything!
