Well, it's election mania here in Vancouver, too. The Canadian federal election came and went without so much as peep this month. And the civic election is coming up next month. But folks here are too enthralled with the US presidential campaigns to give much attention to their own elections. I guess Canadians are more interested in the US election because not only is it more entertaining, but who gets elected does affect their livelihood.

Obama fever is widespread here as well.
