Local Politics and Pictures of the Boy

Ross and I (okay, well, mostly me) have this silly little addiction for watching the local public access channel’s coverage for the council meetings for our community. Seriously, its like a soap opera. I love it. Anyway, a few weeks ago, we were watching and things got heated because two councillors belong to a group called Voice, which they claim is NOT a political party, and apparently the group leaked some information to the media about some in camera information currently in discussion with the sitting council. Anyway, the group leaked to the media, the media called another councillor for confirmation, and he was misquoted, basically accused the councillors and not the group of leaking the info. So the two councillors tried to demand an apology from the misquoted councillor and the whole thing ended up with the mayor basically telling them to STFU and stormed out. It was, seriously, awesome.

Its civic election time here in BC, and of course I’m voting because I go off the theory that if you don’t vote you can’t whine. So all over the place, popping up like mushrooms, is political signs advertising candidates and what do I spy? Signs for Voice New Westminster. You know, the group that is “not a political party”. I’m not linking to their site because I don’t think they deserve the traffic.

So here’s the deal. If you live in New West, cast your vote for Wayne Wright if only because he’s a no-bullshiter when it comes to what he stands for. Anyone who says that Voice New Westminster is not a political party and is “just an organization” (whose president HAPPENS TO BE RUNNING FOR MAYOR) is full of poopies.

And because politics isn’t really my normal discussion topics:

I look like an ad for a hat company:
