    New Canadian, election article

    I stumbled on this as I was surfing the news today and I just can't believe this guy.  I'll let you decide how to react, his email is at the bottom of the article. I am disgusted to be a new Canadian. Although I felt considerable satisfaction when I cast my ballot Monday for the first time...
