A leetle experiment

Given all the interest there seems to be from the House of Commons and The Toronto Port Authority, I figured I would conduct a leetle experiment.

Garth Turner - a candidate for the people

Lisa Raitt - a candidate for Stephen Harper and his cronies

Oh yeah, and what was that Canadian Flag lapel pin thing Stevorino had going on in the debates. That is an American thing. Last I checked, Canadian patriotism is not measured by the wearing of Canadian Flags on one's person. I guess that is just one more way the Stevemeister is showing he is an American at heart.

By the way, I, (as RossK pointed out back in September) want to know why Laureen Harper is still listed the co-leader of the CPoC (screenshot borrowed from RossK)

Who's been visiting my place?

Okay, I can't figure out how to do the fancy screen shots of the sitemeter for some reason, but below is a recent visitor to my site. Check out the search terms and where the visitor is from.

Lisa Raitt came from the Toronto Port Authority and no sooner did I give the h/t to Garth for the video below and look who comes sniffing around. Interesting.


Guess who came back for a second visit? Entry page this time? Directly to this post. Interestinger... Hi Lisa's people. I hope you got what you came for.

Upperdate (Oct 3):

Not only have my friends at the Toronto Port Authority been back to visit this post this morning - twice, I have also had two visits from the House of Commons. Those two visits were from emailed hyperlinks directly to this post. Hi again Lisa's people! I really can't imagine why you would have bothered to come back, but feel free to poke around.
