    Actually I think he was trying to use the sign as an omen “wrong way”….a bit of a reach for humour.

    This would actually require Mr, L to stop flashing back to when he actually lived in Cambridge. He has never lived here as an adult.

    O my Goodness Bill, get over it….it is becoming old, old, old…find something new to Bitch about….You never lived here as a child….no one cares

  4. Bill Kirby September 29, 2011 at 8:19 pm

    @Beth… the point is that despite my not growing up in Cambridge I have most deffinately spent more time involved in the various aspect of our community than he has. How could he hope to represent something he knows so little about.

    OMG, Johnny, It seems obvious to me that Leone was saying ‘don’t vote the “wrong way” (meaning, of course, Liberal). No way was he trying to make it appear as if the bus was going the wrong way on a one street…..Though, that is the direction the Liberals have been headed….the wrong way.

    Seems its you and rest of the Fiberals that need to grow up a bit.

    BTW how are you guys liking your leader coming up with a job plan, just one week before the election? Did he just now catch on that in this ecomony it’s about JOBS JOBS JOBs (a day late and a whole bunch of dollars short).

    @Margaret….name calling? really? that is so beneath you. How can we take you seriously.

  7. Allan Dettweiler September 29, 2011 at 9:42 pm

    OK, everyone grow up and vote Libertarian!

  8. Hags September 29, 2011 at 9:44 pm

    Margaret, don’t know about you but this seems like the longest campaign ever…and I’m starting to get bored with ‘baiting’ arrogant liberals….they(esp Scot), bite better than Grand River suckers.
    Think I’ll go re-read my favourite book..Coulter’s ‘How to Talk to a Liberal.’
    Goodnight Dalton, nite Rory and Prickly Bill, nite Johnny…nite John Boy and Mrs Calabash….whereever you are!

    You think this is bad! Try sitting on a municipal council that is slowly being hijacked by party poltics. I have always said there should be no place in municipal politics for party politics,yet it is being allowed to happen. We did not run on a party platform and certainly not elected by supporters of any one party. As far as the election is concerned, I’d go as far as to say I’d do away with the provincial levels of government and have the regional and municipal governments deal directly with Ottawa on substantive issues. We don’t need them to act as “bag” men for federal funding and then short change us as they have for past decades. Just saying!

    You mean something far more mature like this – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YZKLCJBoBYw&feature=related – posted by liberals far and wide all day wednesday (including a bunch of local ones)

    A little too late to call foul Johnny – maybe we can stay focused on the issues!

    Get Ready for three new faces on Council next time, Joe who, Antinoke, and Susan who are NDP ers so along with Gary, Donna and Pam and Mr Mayor who once was NDP, so we probably will have an N.D.P. Council….Time to retire Ben

  12. ben tucci September 29, 2011 at 10:54 pm

    Like me or not, I’m too young to retire.

  13. Johnny September 29, 2011 at 10:58 pm

    Margaret, when Rob tweets something this childish, with no context or explanation, what is a guy to think? Further, I would expect him to act a little more grown up than this.

    This is like Hudak himself on the first day of the campaign with his cheap little “wheel-o-tax” stunt. Then he wonders why Ontarians don’t think he has anything substantial to offer.

    If Leone or Hudak truly consider themselves leaders, they should start acting like it pretty quick.

  14. Beth Rodgers September 29, 2011 at 11:06 pm

    Ben I am not saying you should retire but next time it very well could be an N.D.P Council….and you…Is it worth the stress?

    In the Beginning Rob Leone was missing for six days. Eventually, Ms. McGarry and Ms. Bankole found him, resting. They inquired of Leone. “Where have you been?”

    Leone sighed a deep sigh of satisfaction and proudly pointed, “Look, guys. Look what I’ve made.”

    “What is it?they asked” “It’s a city,” replied Leone, “and when I get elected I’m going to put Life in it, and it’s going to be a great place of balance.” “Balance?” Kathryn and Anitole Inquired, still confused.

    Leone explained, pointing to different parts of Cambridge. “For example, Hespeler will be a place of great opportunity and wealth while Preston is going to be poor. Pointing to a land mass and asking “What’s that one?” “Ah,” said Leone. “That’s Galt the most glorious place in Waterloo Region. There are beautiful rivers, streams, hills, and parks. The people from Galt are handsome, modest, intelligent and humorous and they are going to be found traveling the province. They will be extremely sociable, hardworking and high achieving, and they will be known throughout the Ontario as diplomats and carriers of peace.”

    McGarry and Antinole gasped in wonder and admiration but then proclaimed, “What about balance, Rob? You said there would be balance!!!”

    Malcolm, humour in an election? didn’t the politics police ban that this year?

  17. Facetious Lee September 30, 2011 at 3:47 am

    Hey Malcontent,
    You should learn how to spell Atinuke.

  18. Facetious Lee September 30, 2011 at 3:53 am

    Try something new Ben.
    You’ve mastered this Council thing.
    Time for some new challenges.
    Perhaps become a barber. Danny and Ben sounds good.
    Or, you could shine shoes.
    But you could do anything you wanted to do, Ben.

  19. Hags September 30, 2011 at 8:27 am

    Ben, local politics is about the only place the old and stale New Democrats can win….of course they don’t campaign on party affiliation…it just seems to creep in with them, by stealth.

  20. Margaret Barr September 30, 2011 at 9:54 am

    @Bill….I’m sorry, but I honestly don’t know what you mean by ‘name-calling’. Please explain. If I called someone a ‘name’, I don’t know when…(or to whom I may have done so…..)

  21. Jan Liggett September 30, 2011 at 11:27 am

    Ben, finally someone being honest about council and party politics and out in the open yet. Good for you. Beth, I didn’t see my name as a new face in your list. Check those tea leaves in the cup once again and be kind enough to tell me what you see please.

  22. Jan Liggett September 30, 2011 at 4:42 pm

    Barb, that’s the first time I have seen or heard of that video you linked us to. I can’t figure out how it could be the liberals fault in any way. The words are from a conservative media personality, it was shown on Sun TV a conservative television station and posted here by a conservative.?????
