Does anybody who is close to Rui Pires know if he is running in the next Federal election. If he is tell him to have a smear free campaign. Honestly I hope he isn't running ever again.

I don't know the intimate details, but that was my old riding.

Rui is a nice guy out of politics, but in June he ran a dirty campaign against Mario Silva.

The Davenport riding has a LONG history of dirty campaigns, Rui was not even close to the worst guy last election.

I'm not giving him a free pass on this, but Silva's run quite a few dirty campaigns himself.

Boo hoo fucking hoo.

I'm surprised Mario and Tony Reuprecht could stop taking names off of gravestones long enough to notice they were being "smeared".

I need a cart-before-the-horse icon, pronto!

Is it negative to point out that Mario Silva proudly admitted to having more corporate funding than any other councilor while he was on the TO city council?

This is what I mean. I am not saying all Dipper's but alot are very bitter people. Me and a good friend of mine never see eye to eye when it comes to politics because she supports the NDP and I of course support the Liberals, but at least she isn't bitter towards me. I guess for some they know the NDP will never form a federal government.

Pretty much proves my point that he has to clairify this to his people. "Hey guys, how about this time we don't try to sabotage the NDP campaign, we did enough damage last time".

The only reason the NDP would be bitter in Davenport isn't because of the NDP not forming the government, but because the Davenport Liberals are really vindictive and run around saying things like

"If he is tell him to have a smear free campaign. Honestly I hope he isn't running ever again. "

I certainly don't believe all Liberals are scum (opportunists and idiots maybe) but Mario is a scummy shit. Tony Ruprecht is scummy shit.

And I know plenty of Liberals who have told me the very same thing. When Charles Caccia says Rui ran a dirty campaign I might give a shit. Until then please crawl back under your rock Liberaler.

From City Council

"Silva allies himself with the mayor on most issues, but when it comes to money -- the power issues -- he votes with right-winger Jakobek."

Just the implication of being friends with that Crook Jakobek should be enough.

But this doesn't even start with the allegations of voter coehersion that we heard of all through the last election.

Was there any peticular reason you started this thread anyway?

Well you guys sure like to dig stuff up from the past. Well here is something for ya. Jordan Berger runs in the 2000 Federal election gets his ass beat by Caccia. Then he runs in to provincial election and he gets beat by Oh let me think right it was Tony Ruprecht. Need I say more?

Perhaps. What do either of those campaigns have to do with Silva or dirty campaigning? Why was Caccia pushed aside in favour of Silva, given Caccia's proven campaign record? Are you always pre-emptively hysterical?

It has nothing to do with mario's campaign it has to do with the fact people on this site always like to go in the past. Just like Harper and Layton did during the election with the sponsorship program. Folks get out of the past. It does nothing.

Yeah, you're not coming from a biased position, or anything. And of course, it's not like this thread could possibly be construed as, oh, I don't know, a SMEAR?!
From what I've heard, regardless of what he said at the office, Silva ran a dirty campaign indeed.

Or maybe it has to do with Mario Silva continually using homophobic smears against Pires and Martin Silva to get elected?

Sounds like a good reason for Rui to run again. I have no clue about what the guy's personal or political beliefs are, but if he ran a nasty campaign and kicked the shit out of the Liberal last time, then he's good enough for me!

Boo Fucking Hoo is right.

There are some Liberals who - much as I loathe their party - I wouldn't want to see "smeared". Some are decent (though profoundly misguided) people.

Mario Silva ain't one of them - and other Liberals will tell you the same:

quote:
There's a widespread perception that Caccia, like other Chrétien loyalists including Shiela Copps, was forced out of the seat during a nasty nomination contest this spring that saw the nomination go to former Toronto city councillor and Martin team-player Mario Silva... Caccia declined to participate in what he described to the national media as a "rigged nomination" for a seat he'd held for 36 years.

Liberals are so holy.
Here's what one Liberal candidate said to me. "Hey did you hear the awful rumour about..."the Conservative candidate. He had it down so pat you could tell he had repeated the "I can't believe people are saying ..." line a whole whack of times.
Oh and then there was the time that one of the senior campaign team (the holy Liberal one that is) went into a popular hangout yelling and swearing about stuff claiming to be from the NDP campaign.
Problem was he was recognized- that restaurant owner was our best advertisment after that and made a big donation.
As a farmer I clean the stuff you're trying to sell off my boots every day Liberaler

Out here we've nicknamed that same stuff Liberal promises.
