It’s Still Up for Debate

I’ll admit it, I’m a giant nerd. Last night I actually recorded and then watched the Ontario provincial debates with intent!

Gridlock as an Election Issue?

The Globe and Mail published an article on making gridlock /congestion /traffic a federal election issue through the use of social media, using #CutMyCommute.

Stephen Harper thought it would be best to have a majority government and is asking […]

The Great Debate
