Blogger and photographer Russ Campbell has a long running blog and is usually quite thoughtful in his opinions.

He is also a photographer, and if offered the bet, would guess he prefers the photography to the writing. His book, Cycroft Birds, can be bought here.

Now you can add a news aggregator to the list of web pages Russ keeps up, as he is now running the Cycroft Gleaner. The aggregator is, “news and opinion coverage, with a focus on Canada and the United States and the issues that make up North American politics.”

At Home in Hespeler will be adding The Cycroft Gleaner to the sidebar in the very near future.

John Tory: Does Toronto Really Need Another Liberal Running for Mayor?

January 7th, 2010

John Tory has apparently decided not to run for mayor of Toronto in the upcoming municipal election. Reading the story, what struck me was the people who managed his previous campaigns:

Jeff Bangs, who managed Tory’s 2004 campaign for the Conservative leadership, decided to run former Liberal provincial minister George Smitherman’s campaign for mayor.

As well, Rocco Rossi, who managed Tory’s failed bid for the mayor’s chair in 2003, announced his own candidacy.

Jeff Bangs is now off to run former Provincial Liberal cabinet minister George Smitherman’s campaign. Rocco Rossi is the former executive director for the Liberal Party of Canada. You might remember him for his Kayaking to save the Liberals last summer.

Russ Campbell comments today on the fate of the Provincial PC brand here in Ontario:

The lost years under John Tory may be too hard to overcome.

The reason for that Russ, is that he was never a Conservative, just a Liberal in PC clothing.
