Hudak rally in Vaughan tonight. Honest.


  1. MikeLondon says:

    I wouldn’t be surprised if an NDP rally in Vaughan got more people. To state the obvious, this election is over.

  2. bigcitylib says:

    Is there anyone under 90 in that audience? Looks like a Rolling Stones Concert.

  3. d/stm says:

    Come on Warren
    Post a pic of that event in Manheim last night…just for contrast

  4. Cam Prymak says:

    Thought it looked familiar.

    Those are like the same empty Ford Nation seats that showed up at Mayor Rob Ford’s all-nighter a while back.

    Love this! Thanks you for posting – made my day!

  6. pcase says:

    Thanks for posting this! Makes my day and looks good on them after their disgraceful homophobic campaign piece.

  7. d/stm says:

    Your opinion is sought……The Lib candidate in G is out knocking on doors and the opposition candidates are out plastering the boulevards with signs. Who is on the right track here?

  8. Tyrone says:

    D/STM – Doors, every time. Signs don’t vote.

  9. Michael says:

    Signs don’t vote.

    As a general rule, now is the time to concentrate on doors and phones. Shore up those last areas. Begin to pull vote. Hard. Littering up the landscape with extra public property signs is a pretty much a waste.

    Remember, public property signs are for name recognition. If your candidate’s name isn’t recognizable by now, you’re probably toast. Getting signs out early and keeping them up shows you are organized, and gives you immediate campaign presence. The real value, though, comes from private property signs, because it shows actual popularity and momentum.

    At most, have a skeleton crew doing sign up-keep and getting a few more signs out now, but dedicate most of your resources to moving people, not plastic.

  10. Tracey says:

    The actual crowd number looked to be around 50 at most. Pics are on FB. Most are campaign staff of the 6 candidates attending. A sign of a dud.

  11. Mike says:

    To be fair, I see it was standing room only. LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL

  12. Mike says:

    He’s got that “CHANGE” sign up again!!!

    I didn’t know it was a fundraiser too.

  13. Todd says:

    meh, rallies only attract the party faithful and partisans. I dont’ bother with them – especially at night. McGuinty is in town tonight, and I’m not there. And PS, just a suggestion, I wouldn’t be criticizing Hudak at the expense of the seniors. Their vote is as important as anyone elses – and they’re growing in number.

  14. john says:

    This photo certainly goes against the Star’s big headline that says we are down by 3 overall and hugely in the 905. What gives? All the other polls in the last few days say we’re up big time!

    • MCBellecourt says:

      I wouldn’t hold much stock in any poll. I think the best thing to do is to do what Warren says, and keep on keepin’ on as if you were still way behind.

      I personally believe that these damned polls should be banned during election campaigns, because they are manipulative, and they make for lazy campaigns. If no polls existed, I’d bet that every candidate would show up at every debate come hell or high water–and they would be forced to clarify their positions on all issues and clarify their respective parties’ platforms.

      It also makes for lazy journalism.
