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.
I’ve heard the famous song, (Somewhere) Over the Rainbow, in many, many styles, but not country… until today. I found out about this very moving rendition by Canadian country legend, Ian Tyson, via a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation series called Rainbow Battle pitting different renditions against one another. Ian’s performance completely took me by surprise and entranced me, I must say! Have a listen!
