Fuzzy math

Ah the good old Canadian Press.

This amused me:

"Chuck Cadman said Wednesday that his riding constituents indicated in a poll that they don't want an election -- and that he must listen to them.

"That's what I'm getting from this (poll)," he told The Canadian Press. "It's only one factor. (But) it is a major factor because I have to represent the views of my constituents."

He said a poll of 600 eligible voters in his B.C. Surrey North riding indicated two-thirds of respondents didn't want an election.

Specifically, he said, 53 per cent of respondents didn't want an election this spring, 13 per cent didn't want one in the foreseeable future, and only 23 per cent wanted one immediately.

Update: Thanks to my readers for pointing out my mistake! It was a test...yaa....right..but anyways, 13% dont want a election in the forseeable future, I dont think they should be factored into his decision. What the hell is wrong with those people.

53% don't want a spring/summer election +13% don't want an election in the foreseeable future = 66%, or 2/3s0 that don't want an election now.

How hard is that to figure out?

willcan beat me to it.

Now, that 13% that don't seem to care much at all whether we were ever to have an election again, that's a bit more worrisome.

And im an accountant!

But it's the wrong frickin question.

The question is not "do you want an election now" it is "do you want to make the Liberals pay for ripping off the Canadian public and driving Quebec to the brink of Separation again?"

I think I'll write my MP again... oh Mr. Cadman....    

5/18/2005 05:01:00 PM

Oh... and there is no link to the source.... please put it up - I want to reference it in my email to Mr. Cadman.

Go easy on Cadman - he has to vote the wishes of his constituents - not that of the Tory party.

eaaasy now. eaaasy.
