Politics and the Thanksgiving weekend
Sunday, October 7, 2007 | 08:07 AM ET
Today will be a quiet day for many people across Newfoundland and Labrador, but there will still be plenty of activity on the campaign trail. Apart from whatever candidates and volunteers will be doing, things will be humming here at the CBC building on the Prince Philip parkway.
Politicians knock themselves out in the days leading up to an election ... and so do media organizations. The CBC building will be buzzing today, with training and preparation for all the activity on Tuesday. As you can imagine, reporting an election - in three media lines and in two languages - takes quite a bit of effort, co-ordination and especially preparedness.
It's going to be a busy day.
