Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
Two Dan Mac bits
I know everyone is talking about the Kory/Sam weirdness, but I have two colourful quotes from the Daniel McIntyre ward race that didn't fit in the paper that I can't bear to waste.
"I have helped so many people and so many organisations. They are not going to forget me."
- Veteran Coun. Harvey Smith, who is running for re-election after losing the NDP nod and much of his Filipino support.
"I'm Latin! I am hotheaded! But I will cool my head and work very diligently with the people of the area for what's best."
- John Cardoso, the proudly Portuguese candidate.
