Photo: Signs of the Election

Just as I leave one municipal election behind, I stumble into a bunch more. At the very least, New Westminster and Vancouver are set to decide their mayors and city councils and school trustee boards next month, and with those weird municipal political parties that don't exist back in Ontario, they seem almost like a provincial or federal elections in miniature. Still, there's less than a month to go before Vancouver's election and things aren't nearly as heated as they were this time last year in Toronto, so that's a definite advantage to being on the west coast.

I haven't noticed much of anything in signage yet. The only exception was the other night, when I stumbled on to a makeshift cardboard sign placed at the Dunsmuir entrance of Granville Station by the campaign of Darrell "Saxmaniac" Zimmerman, who is running for Mayor of Vancouver on a platform that seems to focus exclusively around free transit. The sign didn't last long, though; it was gone when I went through the entrance the next day.
