I joined 2000th of 1 percent of Mississaugans today




Met a couple of interesting people, a man who was raised in South Africa during apartheid, a woman and her dog, and a professor on sabbatical who is writing a text book on Critical Thinking.

There were also a bunch of dippers there too, about 300th of 1 percent of total NDP voters in Mississauga.

And oddly, a large number of the people I spoke to, still use FaceBook.

The other 2,352 so called refugees that Harper has allowed to emigrate to Canada consist of wealthy Syrian Christians who paid their own way in, hightailing …

Election close call, Omar, Bob and move over Warren

Wow that was a close one:
With the NDP leading in the polls at the beginning of September, I started to prepare myself, for the very first time in my life, to vote for the NDP. Mulcair looked good enough for me, with some of the best lines about Harper's Government during most of his interviews, except that he would always add the phrase, "just like the liberals" to the end of it and I thought, if I'm one of those Harper hating, Liberal voters that you probably need to vote for you, why the hell are you insulting me with this partisan bullshit.
