I have to admit, during the by-election and whatnot here in Guelph, I didn't watch any debates, and thus didn't see the full scope of the candidates we have to choose from. Tonight, this changed.
I'm pretty sure there are like, 30 people running in this election. Animal Alliance, libertarians, communists, marijuana, the normal candidates and MY NEW FAVOURITE CANDIDATE:
Independent John Turmel
This man is crazy and hilarious. He was the only candidate to stand up and gesticulate wildly every time he spoke (yelled), he wore a construction helmet which read "TURMEL THE ENGINEER", and I'm almost certain he said "I'm going to kill Ted Rogers" in his concluding speech. My mother didn't hear that bit, but I'd prefer to believe that he said it.
Wow. THIS is what Canada needs to make our elections more exciting. Pure insanity.
Apparently, his blurb in the paper also says something about legalizing prostitution because shy and unattractive people deserve to get laid. THESE ARE THE ISSUES.
