There is of course much talk in the US about blogging politicians. Ontario is having an election October 2, 2003 and I was a bit disheartened to see how Dalton McGinty, leader of the opposition Liberal party, is blogging on “Dalton’s blog”
Here is a stirring excerpt from one of the four posts since the blog went live in May:
“Most nights, there’s a rally. Tonight, there was a dose of reality.
With the campaign ads on the air now, reporters ask me if the attack ads bother me.
What I heard today, in Sarnia and Wallaceburg and Walkerton, bothered me a lot more.”
