Nova Scotia had an election, eh? The end result is the Liberals have a few fewer seats, the PCs and NDP have a few more, and Gary Burrill no longer has to holler questions from the press gallery.

  1. Thanks for informing us you’ve unsuccessfully attempted interviews with Jamie Baillie and Stephen McNeil. It’s telling they were unavailable or simply declined outright. I’m stunned at their dual decision, given numbers they could have reached, the relatively brief interaction they’d have had with you, your political neutrality, and fact you’re non-combative, deal in facts, and don’t interrupt or bait. Perhaps their factual issues were determinant. Please continue to inform us of such refusals. They’re enlightening.
