Just curious ... any candidates at your station this morning?

At Oshawa GO, PC incumbent Jerry Ouellette was out. I like Jerry. Chad and I lived in Oshawa for six years and he was always open to my phone calls about the Oshawa waterfront, transit, traffic and environmental concerns. He's represented Oshawa for a long time. I have faith he will be re-elected.

The only Clarington (Durham) candidate who ventured out was Granville Anderson on Monday morning, who I blew past because I had the opportunity to catch the 7:28 am train and I took it with less than a minute to spare. I regret not being able to stop and chat. His office never returned my call.

So what was ALL OF THE POLITICS at your station this morning?

I like Jerry too! He has been a faithful supporter of Oshawa at Queen's Park and what I most admired about him was his approachability. I worked from home today. I would have loved to have said hi.

PC candidate was at my station yesterday. I also saw him a few weeks ago there. No one today as far as I know, and I caught the 7.30 train. Never saw the NDP or the Liberal one. Of course, they could have been there on a day I was working from home or even last week when I was on vacation.

For some reason, I thought no one was supposed to be politicking today.

Nothing this morning at 5:30 am but yesterday, our Green Party candidate was there. She's been there twice, and Christine Elliot (PC, incumbent) was there last week or the week before. I didn't see the Liberal, NDP, or Freedom Party candidates at all. But then I'm at the GO station stupid early in the morning.

The only literature I got in my mailbox was from Christine. Nobody to my door. No phone calls.

Jerry wasn't at the Oshawa GO at 6 this morning.

Liberal and PC people were at Burlington station this morning. No sign of NDP. Just like in the polls. Har har.

The NDP guy was at Whitby station when I got off the train this afternoon.

What I loved most about this election is that it knocked a few more cons out of the GTA. They only have 4 seats left at QP and the only reason why Elliot held on to Whitby is because voters were voting with their sympathies and not their heads.

I am in Oshawa. Never saw Jerry once, or any of the candidates for that matter. In fact, the only piece of campaign material I got in my mailbox was from the NDP, Jennifer French.

I am guessing that after 20 years, Jerry was a little too comfortable. It cost him the election.

Tracy MacCharles was at Pickering Wednesday morning. She seemed fairly happy, so I guess she must have had a good idea of how things were going to go.
