And here I thought I was going to have to stalk him! . E-mail: "Hello mister Goodale. As a person that drives an economy car to help decease my dependance on fossil fuels, I was wondering what model vehicle you use as a daily driver." Sounds kinda corny to me. Any suggestions as to what I should write, without seeming like a vandalist looking to victimize Ralph?
I'm a university student who lives in your riding here in Regina (Gardner Park) and I'm proud to say that I've acted proactively to decreasing my dependence on fossil fuels. This past August, I sold my '91 Thunderbird for a '97 Geo metro with a manual transmission. I am also pleased to announce that I've accomplished an average of 55.6 miles per imperial Gallon since the purchase and joined an online fuel saving organisation: www.gassavers.org
There is no doubt that gasoline prices affect you no less that any other driver. It's interesting to point out that Liberal Leader Stephan Dion drives a miserly Subaru (source: http://stephanedion.ca/?q=en/Stephan...060724Charming) although year, engine, and transmission are unknown to me. I am curious as to what model vehicle you use for a daily driver.
Thank you for your consideration,

You know I just had to sneak the gassavers website on the e-mail . Now we shall wait and see.
Edit: Oh crap! I spelled Stephane wrong! I tried so hard to have decent grammar!
Larry Campbell, former mayor of Vancouver BC and now a CDN Senator drove a smart fortwo with sunroof. He even dropped by one of our smart club events in April 2005. I'm not sure what he's driving in Ottawa.
Alan Lowe, the mayor of Victoria BC, drives a black fortwo as well. He also joined us in one club event last year.
