I believe this guy is the king of all volunteers. He’s been a volunteers for 61 years of service. He’s a fantastic individual.
If you see Harold? Please say hello to the guy. He’s the last of the true breed of good hearted people. Good work Harold!!!
I believe this played a role in his defeat to Rick Miles!!!!
Ok..it’s the day after and I must write about my little experience from last night.
At the last minute I decided that I would add Spinks and NbPolitics to my flickr account so I could post a picture of the winner in my blog.
It was 8:00pm. I was over Tim Smith’s place and we decided to choose CBC for the election results and I believe this was a huge mistake from our part.
Terry Seguin promise the audience that the CBC crew will go over and over the votes before making a prediction.
The next thing I knew it showed Stephane Doiron from the NDP elected in the riding of Caraquet!!!
I was surprised but if CBC said it? Then it must be true.
I said - The NDP has a new leader in the Legislature so I blogged it!!!
Around 15 minutes later, the audience was told it was error. The NDP was not elected.
Then CBC began to read emails on the air.
I wasn’t too impress so I quickly change the channel to ATV News with Steve Murphy.
I was running from the television to the computer posting the winners.
Tim was saying 18-18, 19-18, 19-19!!! It was a battle and I wasn’t enjoying it because I was blogging. Abel LeBlanc won no problem whatsoever.
I sent out a blog saying- Sorry! I’m calling it quits!!! I’m going to watch the show.
It was funny because I never swore so much in all my life.
I know every MLA’S and there’s some of them I can’t stand such as Tanker Malley.
Once a winner was announce?
I shouted- F@CK or YEESSSSS!!!!!
It was terrible!!!
Thank God Tim daughter was in bed. I was right into it!!! I knew every single MLA'S and it was quite an experience.
I never acted this way on election night in the past.
So Shawn Graham won with a majority and I’m very happy to hear this because I’m going to see first hand if it matters which Political Party is in power?
I was told over and over today that Shawn Graham will not do a study on Ritalin.
Hey? Shawn Graham promise me that he would so I don’t believe that Shawn would lie to moi??? A Liberal politician lying to the public? Nahhhhhh....
My three concerns are -
Lets see what’s going to happen?
Will Shawn Graham make a great Premier?
I say- Yes!!! By the way?
These are the first two official pictures taken in the Liberal bus before it left Fredericton.
Maybe I can sell them on E-Bay???..lol
He's well known but all for the wrong reasons!!!...lol...
I didn't know him but he just popped from his business and saw my Vote for Shawn t-shirt and made a comment.
I quickly said- Hold it right there!!! I went for my camera.
He shouted - Nooooooo...I don't want to be on your blog and quickly walked away.
I was surprised that he read my blog?
So? Who is this famous Saint Johner???
(A parting from office brief )
OverBoard With Mr.Lord!!
Overboard went Mr.Lord Into the river of shame.
And as he went down,he said with a frown
I have nobody else to blame
As the people they spoke My ministers I woke
Saying deal with these problems at hand
Putting them on the spot so I wouldn't get caught
For my plans that they don't understand
For I fooled all the voters on elections that day
Into thinking I’m the man for the job
They had no idea the price they would pay
Nor did I in creating a mob
I thought I could fool them into thinking I might
Be the premier of choice that would put up their fight
But instead I destroyed everything that I touch
Now the voters are saying they suspected as much
So they yell and they scream that they don't have to live
With a man such as me a ( Con-ser-va-tive)
And if truth should be told then I probably would
Agree with the people that I misunderstood
Reflecting back now with no choice I digress
My legacy, job and my life in a mess
And the rumor I’m hearing I suppose that it's true
Back in with the red and out the blue...
Be it Liberals or Tories, the people will choose
And with your new powers you must never abuse
For it turns out the people hold power of blame
So take care not to join me in this river of shame!
(Timothy Smith 2005)
I truly hope he doesn't go into a deep depression over all of this and possibly go back to drowning his sorrows by slipping into his addiction to Video Lottery Machines.
It would probably be a good Idea for his Family and Friends to keep a close eye on him for a while through this coming Winter.
I know he came out with his story on vlt addiction but he has said as of yet he has NOT sought professional help for his addiction.
Those of us who care deeply about this issue really know just how volnerable Mr.Malley is right now.
He will be going through some very rough days ahead and his emotions are obviously going to be quite shakin up but as long as he takes it one step at a time and tries to keep himself busy this winter along with a suggested once a week visit to ridgewood if and when nessesary he should be able to come through this and once again find a few sunny days ahead.
Good Luck Mr. Malley.....And please try to remember this is NOT the end of the world.
Maybe you were not meant to go back to the peoples house as a representative but as a spokesperson on the serious issue of VLT addiction from the outside.
Along with a few other effective Voices try to remember YOU can make a difference.
