GUIDE TO THE CANDIDATES! Let's go from left to right:
MOOSEY CIRCLEBACON: The humble son of a log cabin, he has never spoken a word at any point in the campaign. As a result, no one knows what he stands for or what he'll do as Prime Minister. Currently leading by double digits.
PRINCESS HOCKEY: The perennial one-issue candidate, her entire campaign revolves around her promise to repeal the 1987 Gringlit-Weindorf Tax Recumberment Act For Provencal Legislatures. Needless to say, she is incredibly popular.
SAMMY "THE CLAM" VENETCIANO: Favors a return to long, list-based forum posts like from back in the old days of Poe News. His slogan, "Bring back the bulb system" confuses and angers all Canadians without exception.
STEPHEN HARPER: He met the Pope once! The Pope smelled better than he thought he would.

Oh yeah, sometimes I forget there's a world outside of the U.S. during election season. How's it goin up there?
I've actually got Canada on my list of places I want to try living.. mostly Vancouver because climate-wise it's about the same as Portland (I lived in Wisconsin long enough to know that I can't handle cold winters), and I know some people up there whose couch I can sleep on until I get on my feet. I'm just kinda done with These United States at this point, and if Trump wins the pot (which I think he probably will) I'd rather get out while I can, watching Trump from a distance for entertainment purposes kind of like how we in the states watched Mayor Ford.

What do you think of our other candidates, crasspm? If anything?
I'll be voting NDP (Mulclair, second from the right) as per usual. I've been disengaged from Canadian politics for a while so I can't give much of a summary. The best I can do is say Trudeau is not ideologically far from Harper on issues of substance (voted in favour of bill C51, Canada's version of the Patriot Act, but he loves the pot!). The Greens are the Greens, you can vote for them if you're not concerned about strategic things like splitting the vote on the left.
I'm signing myself up to be a candidate for the satirical Rhino party. I've never done anything like that, so we'll see how it goes.
The debate stage is as bland as the candidates.
"What color should we make our stage?"
"We should have at least one other color..."
Oh how quaint, look at those Canadians squabbling "aboot" economics and jobs, like they're a real country or something.
This debate aired the same night as the Fox News Republican debate and in comparison the set design here is almost aggressively boring.
