of art. With a strong focus on drawing, doodling and sketching, this show is about showcasing the work that we
believe defines us. From it's rawest form to it's most refined, it all deserves to be put on display.

Juice man squeezes out first ballot victory: Gregor Robertson wins Vision nomination

By samanthaorwell on June 15, 2008 - 9:45pm

FULL POST WITH LINKS AND PICTURES

So Gregor Robertson wins on the first ballot. Easily. I must say, I am surprised.
No surprise De Genova didn't have a chance though.

But I'm surprised there was a sorry turnout for Louie. I still think Louie would have been the better candidate against Ladner. Now, come election in November you have pretty much the same people running against eachother. Robertson has been called, "Peter Ladner's younger, taller, more tanned brother". Pretty much the same politics, just different parties.

I still believe Ladner will take it in November. He's got more experience and he's much more competent than our little playboy-juice man Gregor.

But how about the news of a Louie campaigner coming out to tell Francis Bula the they lost. Talk about unprofessional. That campaigner is going to be in trouble, no doubt. You don't admit defeat until it is official. Especially to media.

You can read more from Francis Bula:

[Robertson] defeated two-term city councillor Raymond Louie and park-board commissioner Allan De Genova. The vote drew a record number of voters, almost 7,000 out of 13,000 members, which is almost unheard of for a civic nomination race. He won easily on the first ballot with over 3,400 votes out of 6,771.
