Hey Ben, Take a look at the interviews. The reason that the issue of faith funded schools was raised is because JT was questioned at every opportunity by DM about it. I believe that it was a Liberal strategist who pointed out the issue to DM after recognizing it as a weak spot in the PC platform. Surprisingly enough, if this legislation was brought into parliament during the current liberal mandate, it most likely would've passed by a sizable margin.

DM successfully hijacked the PC campaign by hamstringing them with the faith based school issue, changing the focus of the electoral race from the current mandate's lack of integrity to something relatively minor. I'd encourage you to base an opinion on reading party platforms as posted on their respective websites. I don't know if you watched the debate, but I found the respective body languages of the candidates rather interesting. Also, I'm not sure if you heard yesterday, DM was hosting a radio show yesterday where, like all the other party leaders including the Greens, party leaders have accepted calls from the general public regarding their party's policies. DM chose instead to have various supporters from Greg Sorbara to some nurse call in and build his ego. A complete disappointment and blatant disrespect to the public who still have many questions. Also, I'm not sure if you've noticed but DM has only hung out in a bubble during this campaign never allowing people with an opinion other than his receive any considerable amount of attention. Of course, this is smart because then people never seen anything negative about him but it's playing politics - something that if you look at his gov't's policy timing has characterized the last four years. Not to mention, sometimes I feel like slapping the smirk off of his face.

All this just reinforces my opinion that DM is disconnected from society as a whole...meaning he's not someone I want running my province.
