How would you feel?

How would you feel if the party you were running for, or the leader of that party, barely recognizes that you are their candidate? Or that there is even a by-election on the go?

Diane Colley-Urquhart was the first candidate nominated to the Calgary – Glenmore way back in early June. Yet no statement has come from the Leader of the PC’s in support of this candidate.

The PC website didn’t even acknowledge there was a by-election on the go until AFTER it was pointed out on two blogs, here and here in the comments; and that was two days ago. We all know this party knew when the by-election was going to be called.

They knew the date, they knew who their candidate was; yet they failed to give Diane Colley-Urquhart every day of free advertising they could on their very own website. It took a couple astute bloggers to bring it to Ed’s attention.

And where is Ed? Diane kicked off her campaign Monday afternoon with a handful of people in attendance. This is not a general election where he can’t attend all 83 constituencies; there is only one show on the go, yet he doesn’t even show up for her kick off???

Does he just “assume” she does not need his support? Perhaps he doesn’t support her as a candidate?

Is he afraid to step foot in Calgary? Has he caught wind that there is a message to be delivered to him? Or is he even paying attention?

So many unanswered questions….counting the days until Eddy makes an appearance.
