  1. I am loyal listener/supporter of your podcast. I am also canvassing for Shauna Sylvester. As I canvas, I am recommending that the many undecided people I meet listen to the mayoral interviews you did. I am further recommending that people undecided on Shauna listen to the UBC Housing Forum on your site. I tell them the forum highlights Shauna’s ability to think on her feet. If they are really leaning Shauna I tell them Stewart didn’t demonstrate thinking on his feet so well.

    To sum, I’ve used that line to about 50-100 people. Your welcome if you notice a listener bump.

    Cheers, Don

    P.S. please comment in your next Conseco poll show that while 17% are committed to vote for Sylvester, 27% think she would make the best mayor.
