In "Big Village" wird gerade gewählt. Wen interessierts's?
Der umstrittene Amtsinhaber, der konservative Premierminister Stephen Harper, liegt Kopf an Kopf mit seinen zwei Herausforderern: Tom Mulcair, dem Vorsitzenden der kanadischen Demokratischen Partei (NDP) und Justin Trudeau, dem Vorsitzenden der Liberalen.
Bei den letzten Wahlen 2011 schaffte es die erste grüne Abgeordnete Elizabeth May ins kanadische Unterhaus.
Eine Freundin, die in Calgary/Alberta aufgewachsen ist und den konservativen Harper ähnlich einstuft wie ihre Landsfrau Margaret Atwood "We know Stephen Harper is a dictator in the making
, but he’s convinced some people that they’re going to be financially better off under him, which is untrue.", hat mir einen Witz aus der damaligen Alberta-Pierre-Trudeau-Zeit erzählt. Vielleicht schafft es jetzt sein ältester Sohn Justin Trudeau, Premier Minister von Kanada zu werden (oder Mulcair).
"...All people from Alberta were the mortal enemy of Justin Trudeau’s father during his long gig as the Prime Minister. Those days it was the east vs the west and Trudeau was considered to be east Canada and Alberta people were not liberal but very strong conservative.
Justin holds his father's temper, his reaction to provocation and his arrogance as well.
Zu Pierre Trudeau's Zeiten erzählte man sich folgenden Witz aus Alberta:"A comedian came to do a show in the jubilee auditorium in Calgary. This performer looked up for each city attitudes or ideas that he could use to make the humour special for his audience and he was told that all Albertans all hated Pierre Elliot Trudeau.
So in the middle of his act he yelled “That Prime Minister Trudeau is a horse’s ass!” and to his surprise the audience booed and hissed and threw fruit at him and they had to drag his unconscious body off the stage,
He came to in the dressing room and was extremely upset. “I thought you said Albertans hated Trudeau” he yelled at the stage manager,
"They do hate him”, replied the manager, “but it just so happens they love horses.”
