Oh Canada!

With the election comes new ad campaigns. Here are my initial thoughts on the first three ads I've come across.

Initial thoughts: Only someone like Steve would politicize veterans. Low sir, just low. And what's with this "We're better off with Harper"? That's like saying, "we're better off not getting the car repaired because the deductible is $50."

Initial thoughts: Oh Stephane... I like your style of thinking positive and describing the possibilities rather than saying "we're better off..." While I like your ad, you've got a lot of work to do to remind people that the environment is an important election platform. Good luck.

And then there's the Bloc. They have a song. Here are the quasi-English lyrics, and here is the mp3.

Initial Thoughts: AWESOME! A Bloc rock song! Gilles Duceppe, once again you've made me want to be a francophone. You truly are the greatest politician this country has. If only I could vote for you here. One day. One day...

The First September

This is the first September that I haven't been enrolled in school. True, I did have my first term of school off in OAC but I went back in February. This is the first time in memory that I haven't had school to look forward to (or dread).

While many know that I am working with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship at Mac, some don't know that I'm taking this term off from work - before I start really - to develop a funding base so I can actually sustain myself come January. I think it will be a nice break to be away from campus for a term, and I know that God has a lot that he can teach me over these next four months, and beyond. I am excited to see what God does, and excited to be setting a foundation for myself that will allow me to return to campus in a healthy capacity.

If you feel so inclined, I would love your prayers and support throughout these next few months. I need to find a part time job that will help pay rent and bills, but also free me up to do fund development. Also, I need to build an actual funding base so I can start work in January. Any help or prayers in these areas would be a blessing.
