The final words; the final messages

Signed “Stephen Carter Martha Hall Campaign Strategist”
Card 4, April 10, 2013: Joyce Murray. A different plan.
Rather than sending an email, a call is received from a campaign worker of Joyce Murray reminding the Liberal of her “One Canada” plan, telling the Liberal about her past experience, why she stands out, and how long they have to vote.
Later that day a second call is received. She talks about Murray’s endorsements. Then she reminds the voter that it’s a preferential ballot, that the voter can vote for more than one candidate. She says that it will be a happy day for us if Justin Trudeau is elected but the team hopes you’ll consider Murray.
3 days later, reaching out to those who haven’t voted, the endorsement comes in electronically from Senator Larry Campbell. Subject: “Is business as usual good enough? | Est-ce que le statu quo est suffisant?”. The message has Murray’s face, but it has a message signed by Campbell, endorising Murray, asking for a vote and a donation.
Card 5, April 10, 2013: Martin Cauchon. Subject: “A Question of Vision / Une question de vision”
And Martin plays again. After writing about what he said at the National Showcase in Toronto on Saturday “my experience, my determination, and my vision for Canada”, he provides links to his speech and a video of his speech. Then there’s a link to his Have Your Say site and his new video Martin Cauchon: It’s never too late to enter the race.
The Final Hand, April 10, 2013: Karen McCrimmon. Subject: “Their Worst Nightmare, Canada’s Best Hope / Leur pire cauchemar, le meilleur espoir pour le Canada”
After giving a link to her speech at the Showcase and talking about the highlights – what she brings to the table – a tough target, a mediator, a mother, experience leading teams and missions, understanding responsibility from making life and death decisions, being a consensus and builder and team player, having credibility to talk about security differently, being positive and optimistic and believing on decisions based on evidence, not ideology, she says “It’s time to claim our politicals, our governance, and our future back. I can help make that happen.” After the asking for a vote she asks for a donation.
