On the Guardian poll that says the Liberals are closing the gap on the Tories:

Paul - "The real story here is the 34 per cent undecided. The Binns government is heading for a steamroll, and a considerable one."
Nancy - "The Liberal party should look long and hard at how its running its campaign."
Ross - "The undecided is a rather a curious one."

On why electricity rates are not one of the top issues in Islanders minds:

Ross- "First and foremost health care is the number one issue."
Paul - "If this was a spring election the electricity bills would be the first thing on their minds."
Nancy - "It certainly is on mine."

On the NDP campaign, and revelations two candidates let their names stand simply to fill the ballot:

Nancy - "It's pathetic if all you're going to do is push a warm body into a seat to draw a protest vote."
- "It's unfortunate for the party."
- "Island media tend to show the NDP aside. They have the advanced platform, they just don't get the play."
