I'm taking a one day break from my current series. It is election day here in Canada. Hopefully this is the last day that infernal Dark Lord of the Sith is in a position of power. A few days back at my writer's blog I did a meme post on my least favourite Prime Minister. He would not approve. To my fellow Canadians, get out there and give this guy the swift electoral kick in the hindquarters that he more than deserves.
In the Parliamentary system, we vote for members of parliament by our ridings as opposed to a party leader. Here in the riding of Ottawa Centre, the signs for the four main party candidates were all together in Dundonald Park: Liberal, Conservative, Green, and New Democrats. The Bloc Quebecois runs candidates through Quebec as a fifth party, we have the odd independent Members of Parliament, and there are a number of fringe parties across the country. Candidates from the Rhinoceros (yes, that's real), Communists, Marxist-Leninists, Libertarians, Progressive Canadians, Marijuana, and Pirate parties and various others are running here and there in select ridings, but fringe parties never garner more than a handful of votes.
Awhile back I showed you an altered pic of myself courtesy of Norma and Collin. I decided to adapt Bane's dialogue from The Dark Knight Rises, and add some memes to it for the electoral occasion.
