Campbell says you can see Russia from the Peace Country

Liberal Leader Gordon Campbell has them rolling in the aisles — at least on the campaign bus.



As Campbell’s bus pulled out of Dawson Creek this morning, through the flat, treeless country of the Peace Region, Campbell told reporters ”you can actually see Russia from here.”


Sarah Palin made a similar remark during her unsuccessful run for the U-S vice-presidency — but it’s doubtful comedian Tina Fey will get as much mileage from Campbell’s tongue-in-cheek comments.


Meanwhile, Blair Lekstrom commented about three new left turn lanes built on the highway heading out of town to Alberta.


The Peace River South M-L-A says his region always votes right, but notes there’s a little room for the left.
