Signs of the Apocalypse
Considering we are in the midst of a rather heated, high-stakes election campaign, I haven't seen all that many campaign signs around, although since the writ was dropped I haven't really been around too many parts of the city other than Thickwood and Downtown. Perhaps that will change in the next couple weeks before voting day. I can't actually vote for either of these candidates since my part of Thickwood isn't included in their riding, but I will most definitely be voting. No excuse, really, since I'm off work that day.
I'll avoid getting into politics here (that's a first, I know) except to say I hope Fort McMurray ends up with at least one voice at the government table. I also hope that the party leaders of both leading parties can stop their petty sniping (a tall order I know) about how one party leader doesn't have children and the other doesn't seem to like Alberta, and get on with business.
