The Stars predict a winner. Will voters comply?

Let's cut to the chase.

You want to know who's going to win the provincial election.
And we're going to tell you.

The answer is....

...written in the stars.

Gary Doer was born March 31, 1948 which makes him an Aries.
Hugh McFadyen was born May 31, 1967 which makes him a Gemini.

We've examined what four astrologers have to say about the influences on the party leaders during the current month.

* Penny Thornton was Lady Diana's personal astrologer for six years.
* Susan Miller (Astrologyzone) is a world-renowned and accredited astrologer. She writes columns for In Style and has appeared on such shows as 20/20, The Early Show, and The View.
* Neil Giles (Astrology on the Web) is an astrologer whose passion for mythology and the ancient traditions has led him on a journey through Astrology, Tarot, the Runes and the Celtic Ogham Script as a seeker and personal reader. He lives on an island in the South Seas.
* John Hayes is the British Astrological and Psychic Society (BAPS)'s premier Astrologer at the UK's biggest Mind Body Spirit Fairs in Manchester and London each year.

Aries: With ruler Mars hidden away in the zone of mystery and suspense you may have experienced a lack of confidence recently, even become a tad paranoid, but with the arrival of this planet in your sign back comes your va va voom with a vengeance. (Penny Thornton, The Week Ahead)

This accurately describes Gary Doer's sudden reluctance to debate the other party leaders.

The New Moon on May 16 is a turning point for both signs.

Gemini: Once Mars moves into Aries on May 16, it will not be back to shine a spotlight on your career until March 2009. While you have such an extraordinary chance to move up, use it! (Astrologyzone/ Susan Miller)

Aries: Mars zooms into your sign Aries by May 16, and that's when your energy will streak skyward. ..This is a special phase that only comes by for seven weeks every two years, so aim to make your most important initiations during that time (Astrologyzone/ Susan Miller)

There's good news on the horizon for one contender.

Gemini: There's a beneficial shift or revelation around May 20th. (Astrology on the Web/ Neil Giles)

Perhaps a poll that shows the P.C.'s leading or within striking distance?

But there has to be a winner.

Aries: the week of the 21st could bring good news and your efforts stand an excellent chance of success. (Penny Thornton)

Aries: you'll find it far easier to be successful, on just about every front. Suddenly you will find that others are looking to you to lead the way, a position you will relish. (Susan Miller)

Aries: With Mars, your planetary ruler, entering your Sun sign mid-month you'll soon be irrepressible, unstoppable and ready for a challenge again. It's not yet time to hang up your boots. Fortune shines brightly on those born around 6th - 10th April. (John Hayes)

And a loser.

Gemini: The Sun enters your sign on May 21st. Happy birthday, Gemini! Strength and fortune will come from plans already laid, good friends and partners or close associates. It's a learning year. (Susan Miller)

Gemini: Once Mars moves into Aries on May 16, it will not be back to shine a spotlight on your career until March 2009. (John Hayes)

And with loss, often comes recriminations.

Gemini: The opposite of what you expect may prove to be the worthwhile endeavour, idea or connection. There are intense discussions or negotiations from May 27th. There may be a clash of or with authorities. Accident or argument is a risk. (Susan Miller)


Things to remember:

Almost 100,000 fewer people voted in 2003 than voted in 1999.

The Liberal Party had 67,000 less votes in 2003 than in 1995.
The bulk of the voters deserted the party in 1999 and went to the NDP.
Half stayed in 2003, but the other half didn't come back and the Liberals lost another14,000 votes.

The Progressive Conservatives received almost 143,000 votes in 2003, down 76,700 from 1995.
Given the low voter turnout in 2003 (54 percent), it appears their voters stayed home and didn't gravitate to another party.

The NDP can see that if Tory voters come back, and Crocus shareholders decide to punish the party that lost their savings, the NDP are in deep trouble.

The unreported bombshell conspiracy evidence in the Trudeau/SNC-Lavelin scandal

Wow. No, double-wow. A game-changing bombshell lies buried in the supplementary evidence provided to the House of Commons Judiciary Committee by former Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould. It has gone virtually unreported since she submitted the material almost a week ago. As far as we can find, only one journalist-- Andrew Coyne, columnist for the National Post--- has even mentioned it and even then he badly missed what it meant, burying it in paragraph 10 of a 14 paragraph story. The gist of the greatest political scandal in modern Canadian history is well-known by now. It's bigger than Adscam, the revelation 15 years ago that prominent members of the Liberal Party of Canada and the party itself funneled tens of millions of dollars in kickbacks into their own pockets from federal spending in Quebec sponsoring ads promoting Canadian unity. That was just venal politicians and a crooked political party helping themselves to public money. The Trudeau-Snc-Lavalin scandal is

Crips and Bloodz true cultural anchors of Winnipeg's aboriginal gangs

(Bebo tribute page to Aaron Nabess on the right, his handgun-toting friend on the left) At least six murder victims in Winnipeg in the past year are linked to a network of thuglife, gangster rap-styled, mainly aboriginal street gangs calling themselves Crips and Bloods after the major black gangs of L.A. The Black Rod has been monitoring these gangs for several months ever since discovering memorial tributes to victim Josh Prince on numerous pages on, a social networking website like Myspace and Facebook. Josh Prince , a student of Kildonan East Collegiate, was stabbed to death the night of May 26 allegedly while breaking up a fight. His family said at the time he had once been associated with an unidentified gang, but had since broken away. But the devotion to Prince on sites like Watt Street Bloodz and Kingk Notorious Bloodz (King-K-BLOODZ4Life) shows that at the time of his death he was still accepted as one of their own. Our searches of Bebo have turned up another five ga

Manitoba Hydro is on its deathbed. There, we said it.

Manitoba Hydro is on its deathbed. Oh, you won't find anyone official to say it. Yet . Like relatives trying to appear cheery and optimistic around a loved one that's been diagnosed with terminal cancer, the people in power are in the first stage of grief -- denial. The prognosis for Hydro was delivered three weeks ago at hearings before the Public Utilities Board where the utility was seeking punishingly higher rates for customers in Manitoba. It took us this long to read through the hundred-plus pages of transcript, to decipher the coded language of the witnesses, to interpret what they were getting at, and, finally, to understand the terrible conclusion.  We couldn't believe it, just as, we're sure, you can't--- so we did it all again, to get a second opinion, so to speak.  Hydro conceded to the PUB that it undertook a massive expansion program--- involving three (it was once four) new dams and two new major powerlines (one in the United States)---whi

Nahanni Fontaine, the NDP's Christian-bashing, cop-smearing, other star candidate

As the vultures of the press circle over the wounded Liberal Party of Manitoba, one NDP star candidate must be laughing up her sleeve at how her extremist past has escaped the scrutiny of reporters and pundits. Parachuted into a safe NDP seat in Winnipeg's North End, she nonetheless feared a bruising campaign against a well-heeled Liberal opponent.  Ha ha.  Instead, the sleepy newspeeps have turned a blind eye to her years of vitriolic attacks on Christianity, white people, and police. * She's spent years  bashing Christianity  as the root cause of all the problems of native people in Canada. * She's called for  a boycott of white businesses . * And with her  Marxist research partner, she's  smeared city police as intransigent racists . Step up Nahanni Fontaine, running for election in St. John's riding as successor to the retiring Gord Macintosh. While her male counterpart in the NDP's galaxy of stars, Wab Kinew, has responded to the controversy over

Exposing the CBC/WFP double-team smear of a hero cop

Published since 2006 on territory ceded, released, surrendered and yielded up in 1871 to Her Majesty the Queen and successors forever. Exposing the CBC/FP double-team smear of a hero cop Some of the shoddiest journalism in recent times appeared this long August weekend when the CBC and Winnipeg Free Press doubled teamed on a blatant smear of a veteran city police officer. In the latest example of narrative journalism these media outlets spun stories with total disregard for facts that contradicted the central message of the reports which, simplified, is: police are bad and the system is covering up. Let's start with the story on the taxpayer funded CBC by Sarah Petz that can be summed up in the lead. "A February incident where an off-duty Winnipeg officer allegedly knocked a suspect unconscious wasn't reported to the province's police watchdog, and one criminologist says it shows how flawed oversight of law enforcement can be." There you have it. A policeman, not

Winnipeg needs a new police chief - ASAP

When did the magic die? A week ago the Winnipeg police department delivered the bad news---crime in the city is out of control. The picture painted by the numbers (for 2018) was appalling. Robberies up ten percent in  a single year.  (And that was the good news.) Property crimes were up almost 20 percent.  Total crime was 33 percent higher than the five year average. The measure of violent crime in Winnipeg had soared to a rating of 161.  Only four years earlier it stood at 116. That's a 38 percent deterioration in safety. How did it happen? How, when in 2015 the police and Winnipeg's police board announced they had discovered the magic solution to crime? "Smart Policing" they called it.    A team of crime analysts would pore through data to spot crime hot-spots and as soon as they identified a trend (car thefts, muggings, liquor store robberies) they could call in police resources to descend on the problem and nip it. The police
