Could This Explain the Big Advance Poll Turnout?

I voted in the advance poll. It seems that a lot of us did. 29 per cent more than usual.

I have wondered what that early turnout heralded. The Globe's Gary Mason thinks he knows:
“I voted in the advance poll because I just wanted this thing over with,” a friend told me on the weekend. “A group of us all did. It’s been the most depressing election campaign I can remember.”
Hey, I think he's on to something. That's why I went to the advance poll. I too just wanted the damned thing over with. I've never experienced an election this dismal and dreary with a slate of such second-rate leader material to choose from. It's a real shit-show, folks.  They're all shooting at slow-moving targets and no one is scoring a hit.

You may not like it but

have scored a few hits.

Yeah but I'm not sure, outside of Quebec, that they're having much impact. I was mainly focused on the pissing contest between Scheer and Trudeau.

I'm anxious to see what Ontario contributes to this yawn-fest, Mound. If they go with the Cons, especially after the duggie frod impact, then I know that Canada is in far more trouble that even I anticipated -- and I'm not particularly hopeful!

Maybe that suggested BC, Washington, Oregon and California alliance is not such a bad idea after all?

It has a place in my heart, Lulymay. Far from the madding crowd.

OK, so much for the stiff upper lip.

May may keep her seat.

Apparently all the parties use plastic signs - except the NDP who use paper.
