Election Debate

Election Debate
I watched the debate over the Internet.  Stupid Bell Expressvu had the wrong time on the on screen guide.  A few thoughts.

Hermanson should learn that raising one’s volume doesn’t make one sound any smarter.

Calvert echoed Grant Devine’s comments in 86.  If we maintain a balanced budget in an economic downturn we turn our backs on the farmers of Saskatchewan.  Spooky.  I don’t know how you can brag about job growth and then point to the difficult economy when asked about budget deficits.

Karwacki is right, Hermanson is tanking in urban Saskatchewan.

Low utility rates and some funding for education is not a real plan to grow the province.

Saskatchewan does need careers, not just jobs.

Broad tax cuts by themselves will not stimulate the economy. 

Why didn’t Hermanson talk about purposed changes to labour laws?

Karwacki actually thinks he can win. 

How can you call someone a hypocrite repeatedly and then say you were “stepped on” in your final statement.

    i know i’m slightly partisan in all of this … but Calvert was the statesman during the debate … Karwacki and Hermanson were less than impressive. Hermanson really messed up when he attacked Calvert personally … even good ol’ John Gormley said that’s the worst thing he could do and HE DID IT! UGH. GO CALVERT GO!

    Calvert did act very well in the debate. Especially in the face of the name calling. Karwacki had a few slip ups. They both seemed heated but at least they would let the other guy get in a word.

    Hermanson came across similar last time. Shrill and annoying. It didn’t hurt his election chances in the rural areas but seemed to in the cities. I am still voting for Eric Cline and hoping Janice McKinnon unretires.
