Hull-Aylmer Candidate Report
This has been an amazing election. Other than one mention on TV the night I registered, there was not one word of coverage, not one word of media. My lowest score for a federal election with little coverage was 1982, Broadview-Greenwood federal, 16 votes. With this election now over, I got 51. Can't complain though it can now be said that L.E.T.S. has been once again rejected by the electorate.
One interesting note: a fax from Elections Canada Hull-Aylmer with the:
"liste de numeros des telephones et de telecopieurs des candidats Parti, Candidat, Telephone, Telecopieur Block Quebecois, Robert Belanger, 595-0095, 595-3136 Nouveau Parti Democratique, Alain Cossette, 771-5559, 771-6608 Parti Reformiste, Da Silva, 860-7285, 685-5552 Parti de la loi naturelle, Jean-Claude Pommet, 777-7141 Parti Liberal, Marcelle Proulx, 777-1118, 777-7004 Parti progressiste conservateur, Richard St-Cyr, 770-0200, 770-0333 Ind't, John C.

So, record #2, for most election losses, has now been broken. Guinness keeps both records in case someday I win. Oh, the Red won.
