In 2015, I entered all the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) literary prize contests as part of my effort to get writing back into my life. I didn’t win anything, but that’s OK. The competition was immense for both quality and quantity. This is my entry for the Short Story contest (link to winners), which is now over and I can share my entry. It’s my first ever science-fiction story. I hope you’ll enjoy it. :)

Welcome to election night in Canada! For a decade, Canada and the world has been putting up with the sad collective lack of intelligence of Canadians to have voted in Stephen Harper. It is Stephen with a ph, right? That’s how little I care about him. And I apologize on behalf of my fellow Canadians with the stupid vote all these years.
There is no doubt we want Harper out. It’s just a matter of having enough people vote for one party to put him out rather than leave him with the biggest minority.
No matter what happens, the Canadian Internet has a good chance of breaking tonight either with the euphoria of having Harper kicked out, or fury of having Harper staying where he is, no matter under what electoral conditions.
So my question is does the Canadian Internet have a better chance of breaking tonight if Harper gets kicked out, or back in?
The Toronto Star recently analyzed the leaked database of Ashley Madison cheating website data for Canadian postal codes from where the most (credit card) money was processed. How the results came out was the neighbourhood at Yonge St. and Eglinton Ave. W. in Toronto being first (where Ashley Madison’s home company Avid Life is located), and then, eyebrow raisingly, the 31,483 population town of Lloydminster, which (ahem) straddles Alberta and Saskatchewan.
