Elections are like holidays
No, I'm not talking about Christmas, unless Santa drops down the chimney and says you'll get your present in five years. Nor am I talking about Canada Day or Groundhog Day (though I'll admit there's a bit of flag-waving and seeing shadows, wondering when spring will arrive.)
It's watching Stephen Harper's day-to-day campaigning that suddenly reminded me of festive occasions. Walk around the neighbourhood, scare people, and hope you get enough bits of candy in the bag all over the place to bring home a big pile of loot at the end. If this works, we can call this the Halloween election. Don't forget your costume.
