Ron Paul comes to (goes to) Ottawa! Tomorrow! ..we'll be there

Hello Everyone at Daily Paul from Canada!

We have been following Ron Paul as well as the Daily Paul for quite sometime, and thought I would finally join in with my first post! Considering Ron Paul is coming to Ottawa and my wife and I will be going to see him speak tomorrow... we are a little more than excited.
Curious if anyone else on the Daily Paul will be at the Manning Conference in Ottawa?

We are hoping to meet Dr Paul and will be filming and tweeting from the conference.

Press Conference Video

Just uploaded video we got from the press conference after Ron Paul's speech.
The audio gets much better at the 4:30 mark.

Hey man, I was there and I

Hey man, I was there and I remember running into you and your wife during that scrum when Dr. Paul came out. Great to see other people thought it was just as exciting and worth the drive!

Check out This Hour Has 22 Minutes this week on CBC, they were interviewing Ron Paul supporters and trying pretty hard to spin it, so it should be interesting to see how that comes out.

PS. Next time register as a student and pay $100, they never really check if you're enrolled ;)

Be Interesting...

Be very interesting to see how Rick Mercer and the crew spin things since we never saw him or his crew there?

Will be checking out the 22minutes this week.
Here's a spin that will make you dizzy: I just watched the Ron Paul quiz put out by the Broadbent institution http://www.youtube.com/user/BroadbentInstitute
They have turned off the ratings and comments for the Ron Paul quiz but i went to their channel and just posted on the videos they didn't have comments turned off. I can't stand nonsense and that quiz is nonsense. They have a quiz with no results? And when you take the quiz and score 100% at the end they accuse you of being Ron Paul and to stop taking the quiz??? I thought 100% was a passing grade? So I guess I passed? I figure I answered the questions properly but I got the feeling they were not happy with my 100% passing grade? Did they think no one has common sense and no one could score 100% without having the knowledge of Ron Paul? Or maybe they are trying to get an idea of how many Canadians are actually awake? I wonder what i would have got if I scored a 5%? Maybe a free NDP hat!! A NDP pen and day timer? Maybe a little smiley face on my quiz with a quote from Ned Brainbent saying "good job keep up the good work stick you head back in the stand and carry on with the good work."
They really shouldn't post this pathetic embarassing nonsense but apparently they do not know me or how nonsense affects me.. it seems to inspire a fire within and i teach a good lesson in blowback. Something politicians know very little about. So lets all start giving lessons in Blowback!

PS: Being able to see, listen and meet Ron Paul was a day we will never forget. For me it was no different than meeting Thomas Jefferson or John F Kennnedy. Or in the Canadian version men like Samuel Lount, Peter Mathews, Tommy Douglas... I'm sure everyone here gets the point.

More Video

Just uploaded one small clip of what we took.


Watching right now...

...and it's painfully obvious why I, as a Canadian, haven't voted for almost 10 years. ...because there isn't any party that is libertarian enough. Notice the Conservatives in the crowd sitting on their hands.



You can't get clean in a dirty bathtub.

Too true

He's getting polite applause but that is all. These people are mostly neo conservative, strongly pro Israel and state intervention.

Ron Paul Q&A Session With Preston Manning


Good to see Preston Manning once again, if we had honest media he would get a lot more credit for the relatively strong fiscal position Canada is in compared to much of the western world.

In North Bay

...couldn't get to it.

Ron Paul speaks at the 2013 Manning Networking Conference.


The crowd shots are very telling, Harperites believe in power and state control, a lot of what Ron Paul says will sound foreign to them.

Missed it!

I'm so sorry I missed it. I have no aspirations to cross the border... So to hear I had an opportunity to hear / see him speak here in Canada, only to miss it because I didn't know is a real bummer... :-(

I'm sorry! The videos are on here somewhere (I tried to bump

the ones I did but they didn't bump. I can't find the ones others posted) but it isn't the same as seeing him in person, I know!

Although I'd love to see him in a smaller group, I only saw him at UCLA with 7000 people and there was no Q & A and the roar of the crowd kind if ran over his speech... he was getting used to it....

I missed him at the California straw poll, I was only able to get away long enough to vote for him, not to watch him speak... :(

Integrity means having to say things that people don't want to hear & especially to say things that the regime doesnt want to hear -RonPaul

I'm Going- Ben Tomlinson

High School Student from Assiniboia, Saskatchewan. Was at the reception earlier tonight, but got bored and left, wanted more speaking parts. Tomorrow is full of speakers, Ron Paul speaks from 9:15-10:20AM.

Any of you going to the breakfast.

I don't know what the price now is, but when I got registered (in Feb) it was only $100 for students, and $400 for everyone else.

get pictures if you can!

The Broadbent Insitute has this Ron Paul quiz on their website?

I took the Ron Paul quiz and scored 100% .. The site is a joke and makes no sense.


It's a Canadian leftist site that only sees his economic beliefs

no mention on his foreign policy whatsoever. or libertarianism.
