Reporters' Notebook

From up north

I've been on the road all day and haven't checked on your question submissions but I'm looking forward to them all. Even before I left my hotel this a.m. my phone was ringing with CBC viewers, readers and listeners offering up ideas.

Now, to my day. I met up with Ross Jacobs, the Liberal candidate in Fort McMurray, at Coco Jo's. We had a good discussion about life and politics. He's having fun running a campaign from his rented home and vehicle.

I caught up with a couple of longtime residents who declared they're voting NDP and Liberal. Seems like they're pretty disappointed with how Fort McMurray has changed.

No time for a break before the Stelmach bus rolled in to the Discovery Centre. The only point of the stop was to give reporters in the media van a "comfort" stop and a chance for Ed and Marie Stelmach to bounce baby Marc Boutilier on their laps.

Next stop, the Syncrude Sport and Wellness Centre. I had to bob and weave around all the security detail, then on to a certain cafe for a political rally. (The pie looked good, but I wouldn't recommend the bathrooms.) There was a big sign in the cafe of Guy Boutilier's cousin. He too was there. When it came time for Ed's speech, Guy's aid hustled all the patrons from the cafe to listen (so much for a free lunch).

Boarding my flight back to Edmonton now.
