Happy Byelection Day!

Yes, its Byelection Day in Canada, thanks to our PM Stephen Harper, who apparently wants to try to set new records for low turnout in byelections.

Nevertheless, there are fouer races to watch, with the 2 of most interest being in Trinity-Spadina and Fort-Mcmurray-Athabasca. Adam Vaughan, former TO city councillor is hoping to wrest away the former seat of Olivia Chow from the NDP. You might wonder why I’m interested in Ft Mcmurray, since its supposedly safe for the Tories; well, a) I know Kyle Harrietha – he was an early Liberal blogger and still promninenbt on social media, and I hope nothign but the best for him, and b) a Forum poll came out late last night that claimed the Liberals had an 8 point lead. Yes, its Forum, and yes, their prior byelection polls were way off the mark (Brandon-Souris), but I’m hoping in this case, they’re right.

In that instance, perhaps the low turnout that Harper seemed to be counting on will come back to bite him.
