Municipal Elections

This will be of little interest to my readers outside of Saskatchewan, but this Wednesday is municipal election day in all the urban municipalities in Saskatchewan, as well as all school divisions.

Every candidate, it seems, is in favour of lower taxes, improved services and reducing crime. (Some day, I want to meet the candidate who's in favour of higher taxes, poorer services and more crime. Clearly that candidate is a lunatic, but I'd just be really curious to meet him or her.)

In any event, if you're from my side of the political spectrum and you want to figure out which candidates share your progressive values, check out

Anyway, for those of you who didn't get the reference to mice and cats, you badly need to watch this video:
