scoring a hat-trick for alberta.

The votes have been counted and we have won in three categories of the 2007 Canadian Blog Awards.

daveberta.ca has been voted Canada’s BEST PROGRESSIVE BLOG, BEST BLOGOSPHERE CITIZEN, and as of last night – Canada’s BEST POLITICAL BLOG. It’s a remarkable achievement we can all be proud of.

Tonight, we know one thing for sure — our time has come, our movement is real, and change is coming.

At this moment in history, the stakes are too high and the challenges too great to play the same game with the same players and expect a different result.

This time must be different.

There will be those who say it cannot be done. But we know what we have seen and what we believe — that when ordinary people come together we can still do extraordinary things.

Yes, we can.

Thank you so much,

Dave

the biggest day in the campaign – vote daveberta.ca.

Friend —

Barack Obama won an overwhelming victory in South Carolina on Saturday.

People came out in record numbers and voted for change. Now, after four early state contests, Barack has the most votes, the most delegates, and the most diverse coalition of supporters we’ve seen in a long time.

But this is no time to rest — the stakes are even higher tomorrow in the final days of the 2007 Canadian Blog Awards.

On January 30, 2008 at 11:59PM, voting in the 2007 Canadian Blog Awards will come to an end.

We have exactly one day to make this campaign count. Make sure to vote for daveberta.ca right now to help Dave compete on the biggest day of the campaign:

Here are a few details about daveberta.ca:

– 180 Facebook members have joined the campaign facebook group

– 43% of Canadian daveberta.ca readers are from Edmonton, 24% are from Calgary.
– 8% of daveberta.ca readers are from the United States. Barack Obama is from the United States.

The clear lesson we can learn from South Carolina in the 2007 Canadian Blog Awards is that voters are ready to bring America together and solve the problems that matter to ordinary Americans.
