No, not the Vice-Presidential debate. The Canadian Debate!

http://network.nationalpost.com/np/blogs/posted/archive/2008/10/02/live-blog-english-canadian-election-debate-feat-stephen-harper-st-233-phane-dion-jack-layton-elizabeth-may-and-gilles-duceppe.aspx

Now this was what a debate should be.

Highlight of the night - when asked "what would you do if elected Prime Minister" the Bloc Quebecois candidate Gilles Duceppe (who makes for some AWESOME TV) goes "come on...we all know I'm not going to be the Prime Minister. In fact, three people here aren't going to be Prime Minister... two of them know it, and one of them just won't admit it to themselves."

This was pretty fun to watch, even though I'm not sure the four challengers did themselves any favours by continually piling on Harper, since that makes it harder for left-leaning voters to pick which party they want to vote for.



“How is it that I am a good actor? What I do is I... pretend to be the person I’m portraying. You’re confused. Case in point: in Lord of the Rings, Peter Jackson comes to me and says ‘I would like you to be Gandalf the Wizard,’ and I said ‘You are aware that I am not really a wizard?’ and Peter Jackson said ‘I would like you to use your acting skills to portray a wizard for the duration of the show.’ So I said ‘Okay’ and then I said to myself ‘Mmm.. How do I do that?’ And this is what I did: I imagined that I was a wizard, and then I pretended, and acted, in that way on the stage. How did I know what to say? The words were written down for me in a script. How did I know where to stand? People told me where to stand." -- Sir Ian McKellen, Extras

I'm on record for the past 8-10 years that I would vote for Duceppe if I could. All leaders should have some situation where they could speak their mind with no repercussions.



It is the policy of the documentary crew to remain true observers and not interfere with its subjects.

I tried to explain it to my fellow countrymen by asking them to imagine a debate with McCain, Obama, Kucinich, and Al Sharpton - but with Al Sharpton representing the Seccionist party of New York.

Only in the agricultural sector and they have spent the last decade consolidating companies and eliminating jobs (mostly older farts like me). These guys used to get perks but nothing like AIG or other big boys.
