Yours truly, Sam Katz

Quotes ripped untimely from their context, a Winnipeg mayoral debate at the Red River College Princess Street campus on Oct. 6, 2010:

“Please be specific.” Creative Communications student Thomas Asselin to opponents Judy Wasylycia-Leis and Sam Katz. They ignored him.

“Let me share some facts with you.” Katz to Wasylycia-Leis.

“We are talking about apples and oranges, my dear Sam Katz.” Wasylycia-Leis.

“It’s only a two-hour show.” CJOB host Richard Cloutier to a rambling Wasylycia-Leis.

“Boom, you got ’em.” Katz describes the miracles of a police helicopter chasing down bad guys.

“Why should we bother re-electing you?” Cloutier to Katz.

“Thanks, Mom.” Katz to Wasylycia-Leis.

“Beware the wrath of a Winnipeg mother.” Wasylycia-Leis to Katz.

“The hokiest fraud.” Katz denounces blind trusts, into which he refuses to place his assets.

“God took seven days.” Asked by Wasylycia-Leis what he has been doing in six years as mayor, Katz inscrutably invokes a deity.

“Yours truly.” Katz repeatedly distances himself from himself.
