Canada's Election

Marcel,

Do you know how much I envy you Canadians? Here in the US we've had about two years of campaigning for two candidates I'd rather not have to choose between. You always seem to get things done in no time at all. The newest thing here in my daily rag is a forum between several politicians who want to be California's governor - and the election will take place in 2010! You have no idea how good you have it.
