  1. Fisher

    Fisher is a former provincial electoral division in Manitoba, Canada. It was created for the 1920 provincial election, and eliminated with the 1969 election. The constituency was located in mid-northern Manitoba, in the Interlake region. There have long been suggestions that the election results for Fisher in the 1962 provincial election were rigged. New Democratic Party incumbent Peter Wagner was originally declared the winner, but this decision was overturned when a scrutineer from a remote polling station announced that a miscount had occurred.

I was a little kid when he made the movie ‘ The Rat Race ’ with my mother, and nobody was even thinking in these terms … At that moment, my mother did n’t know Carrie Fisher and I were smoking pot at all. He was even kind of hiding it from her. So it was a little bit of a revelation.

I kept thinking, ‘Should I know this?’ I mean, I wouldn’t have shared that with somebody that I had trusted for years and years and years. But she was the opposite. She just sucked you into her world.
