SPRINGHILL - Just parachuted in from the Nova Scotia Liberals head office in Halifax, Cumberland South Liberal candidate Joseph Archibald says he recognizes the challenges he faces in his adopted riding, but suspects there will be a few raised eyebrows when Nova Scotia goes to the polls June 9.

And just who do you suppose gets stuck with the cost for that parachute?? That's right, the taxpayers of Cumberland County! Well, I for one have had enou....what? Just a figure of speech? Oh. Now I see what Fred meant about doing my research first.

Brent Noiles was nominated over a year ago. Do your homework before you make inaccurate statements, especially the one about these ridings belonging to the NDP.

That's what the Liberals think of Cumberland County folks:
Archie and Brent, a couple of party 'hacks' parachuted in because they 'have so much promise.'
Go back to the war rooms boys, these ridings belong to the NDP!

Wasn't it yesterday that commentators were critical of the green party for parachuting someone into the North riding? The commentators claimed the sole reason for parachuting the candidate in was to ensure money was collected for each vote. Why the silence when its the liberals or in the Federal Election with the PC's? It appears to me the commentators were correct but why are the Greens demonized and not the other parties who pull the same stunt? And why can't this be stopped by making the process less disingenious by preventing money per vote for these sorts of candidates?
