Not To Be Trusted With Knives











{January 17, 2009}   Things For You To Vote For

We haven’t had an election to vote in for more than two months!  Shocking, I know.  With the next election not scheduled for another 116 days1, I’ve just been itching to get my vote on.  While not nearly as important as a federal, provincial or municipal election, I have three things that you can vote on.  You’re welcome.

1. Vote for Terrace!

CBC is letting you vote for Hockeyville 2009.  The winning community gets $100,000 to upgrade their local arena, plus an NHL pre-season game hosted in their arena, with a CBC Hockey Night in Canada broadcast from their community.

One of the top 10 communities in this year’s contest is Terrace, BC.  Remember my former roommate, Danielle?  She’s from Terrace (a.k.a. a Terracite) . She thinks you should vote for Terrace.  I think you should vote for Terrace too.

Go here to vote to Terrace.

2. Vote For Your Favourite Restaurants!

The Georgia Strait is holding the vote for its annual Golden Plates award.  Go here to vote for your favourite Vancouver restaurants.

3. Vote for Saddlebacking!

Or, more accurately, vote for a definition of saddleback.”

Dan Savage needs your help.  He’s looking to come up with a definition for the word “Saddleback” and he’s got seven options for you to choose from. Read here to learn more.  Then email him to vote (as outlined in his article).  I, like Dan, recommendation definition number 5.   It’s so very appropriate!

1The possibility of another federal election being called once Parliament resumes later this month, of course, still looms.

“Terracite” sounds like some kind of Star Trek alien! 😛
