Canadians for Obama!
Canadians for Obama, eh?
Yup, there's a growing group of Canadians supporting Barack Obama for President of the United States. In fact, they're so enthusiastic they have made trips to the states of Washington, Oregon and Texas to support the Democrats. They even have t-shirts for sale (available online).
By the way, Canada has a big election coming up, but it's overshadowed by what's going on south of the 49th Parallel. Last night on CBC's The National with Peter Mansbridge, our economy and election were the #1 story. Canada's 40th federal election is October 14, 2008. One of my friends up north sent me the following email:
It looks like Canada will re-elect the incumbent on October 14 with a majority in Parliament this time, which would be spookier than the current government, and I would be looking for ways to relocate to Obama and Christine Gregoire-land.
