"The disastrous 2011 election created an opportunity for the Liberal party to renew itself, Zach Paikin says."
-- Today's Toronto Star

Always nice to see optimism in politics.

That's a photo caption. The actual editorial is slightly less hilarious. But I needed a laugh.

Technically, this is accurate, except it's not an opportunity so much as a requirement.

I don't really think Justin Trudeau will actually help that much, assuming he's even nominated (everyone seems to be taking this as a foregone conclusion, which I suppose is justified given the rest of the Liberal field), but I really don't know much about opinion of him in Quebec, and that's what's important right now. Well, nothing's important right now. Important in three years.

The US government is under the impression that I am resident in the state of Washington, so today I got to vote for both gay marriage and legalized marijuana. Yay dual citizenship!

I don't know about the ethical aspects of interfering in the electoral process of somewhere I've never lived, but it's not like US government policies don't affect Canada.
