The media were out so the efforts have the desired effect: Canadians will set the agenda on this issue and make sure it doesn't get sidelined by crafty spin doctoring (on all sides).

I've decided to run for GPO Male Deputy Leader again this year. I just pushed an email to the people who supported my nomination last year asking for their support once again - this is required to confirm my registration in the race. Once that's done it's time to get on the phones, sign up new members, renew members, and grow the party. Check out my GPO race page for information on how to join the party and help out.
And here I thought I'd be done with elections until 2015!
