The Election: Day Twelve

This was a relatively quiet campaign day.

The most significant event was an announcement by Stephen Harper that a Conservative government would adopt a national strategy to control cancer.The Conservatives would spend $50 million a year in new money to fund an existing plan developed by more than 700 experts and cancer survivors.

In Quebec Gilles Duceppe demanded more money for forest jobs. He said the government should be providing more loan guarantees to help the forest industry.

The Liberals and NDP had no campaign events scheduled for Saturday.

After viewing the Conservative English ads numerous times I would have to say they do not do justice to Harper and the Conservative platform in this campaign. It's time for the CPC to dump these ads and replace them with something more creative.
