Campaign Diary Kick-off: The Writ-ing on the Wall

Hoorah! The election has been called. Yes! Now we can finally get down to having a serious debate about private involvement in public healthcare, the Kyoto Protocol, the Sponsorship scandal and... and...

Oh look! Sunshine! And scantily-clad men and women beating drums in Parc Jeanne-Mance!

See ya later, skater.

Post-script

Just kidding. Of course I still am fascinated by Canadian federal politics. And in the lead-up to the election you can expect lots of serious stuff here about those serious issues and Jean Lapierre and things.

For instance: While playing Frisbee in Parc Jeanne-Mance today, I noticed a few posters for Parti Vert (duh, the Green Party) up already. Are the Greens really set to take their first seat this election?

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say yes. And not just one seat, but two. This is my prediction based entirely on spending the afternoon lying in the sun.
