I was talking about this the other day, what was your favourite part of the 2006 election?

Aside from the time I spent campaigning with my local candidate, I would say that the moment that sticks out most in my mind is the Duffy on Duffy incident. I was watching it live and I almost &$^* myself.

Election night :) Im only 18, and at the time of the election i was only 17, so all I can remember is Liberal rule my whole life. The whole night was amazing, when they first annonced a 'predicted' Conservative government, when my MP, Brad Trost, was elected, and my personal Favorite moment....When Anne Mccallum FINALLY lost her seat in Edmonton center and thank God for that!

Probably campaigning with my candidate - now MP - Rick Dykstra. I'd say election night as well, specifically the point after midnight when we finally took the lead. That was a little more intense than any of us would have liked.

The day when the Liberal attack ads backfired was pretty memorable too, as far as the national campaign went.

Yep, the point when I realized the dreaded attack ads were considered a joke by the media and voters (remember the meme emails?), was pretty sweet.

Personally though,my fav was at local election victory (which actually turned out to be a victory party and not a "victory" party), where after being neck and neck all night, the CBC declared our MP the winner and we eneded 40 years of Liberal rule in my riding.

My favourite part was "Harpers beer and popcorn bribe" offer too Canadains. They bought it hook line and sinker.

Another good part was Harper telling the nation "Canada will NEVER become a super power"....no one told him the future and present suoer powers are based on energy. So much so that even the weapons of the future are energy based.

In his recent speech in the US he did mention Canada is an energy superpower. Of course the intention wasn't to intimidate but to spread Canada's legs for invasion of it's resources. :)

Seeing Svend's reaction when he lost. We may have elected a nutter, but at least it wasn't a convicted criminal (pardon me, person who committed a crime, and was simply "not charged")

Disrespecting the Canadian public by claiming we'd rather buy beer than ensure our children are taken care of was classic as well.

hahaha, yes - I agree.. I was waiting to see him get elected, I was sure they would bring him in.. I was so relieved to see that there was still SOME sense out there...

That was my favourite moment too. Especially since I had been manning the computer at the Laurie Hawn office all day and got the satisfaction of personally seeing Anne McLellan come into the office and congratulate Laurie for his win. Gold!
