Canada Votes

I have my priorities wrong, apparently. I hopped over to CBC.ca to check out the winning anthem for Hockey Night in Canada and inadvertently clicked on the Canada Votes tab.

The Hockey Night in Canada theme song is THE voting concern in the nation, is it not? Apparently there's this other little matter of a federal election happening on Tuesday. PM Stephen Harper is worried - plagued as he's been this past while by Afghanistan expenditure disclosures, plagiarism issues and the usual dissent in the east ~ so who knows how that will all go. And let's face it - it's always a crap shoot. Canada's disproportionate election process is equally as snafu as the American electoral college. The election is almost always decided before polls have even closed in the west.

Anyways, of the real vote - Hockey Night in Canada - I'm tickled that my shortlisted favourite won. This will be his claim to fame - or in hockey language, he shoots, he scores!

Have a listen.

That's enough to give an old hockey fan a smile :-) Hope your elections turn out better than the process we're going through here. I'm looking forward to a weekend off work, getting some much needed R&R. Be well,

The aptly named House Oversight Committee heard testimony from ex-chairman Greenspan that "he's absolutely shocked" at the financial industry not policing itself to prevent this disaster. Somehow, I'm not. Be well,
