Well, Amos, the sad truth is that the Canadian political scene is almost as futile and pointless and wretched as yours is in the USA. But it's not nearly as dangerous. I am thankful for small favors.

The last time Shane had a chance to vote in Blind River it seems to me that he was hesitating between not voting for "Bible Thumper" (the Christian Heritage Party, who usually cull about half of a tenth of a percent of the local vote) and not voting for "Bolthole" (the Conservative candidate) or "Flipface" (the Liberal candidate) and "No Hope" (the NDP candidate) or "Give Me a Flippin' Break" (the Green Party Candidate". "Bolthole" won as far as I know, but Shane didn't vote for any of them. He is waiting for a party that will promise free beer and smokes for all unemployed Canadians, plus enough pogey to live on comfortably outside of the free beer and smokes.

No official party has yet made such promises, but Shane remains hopeful.
