New Face of the Polling Station

I voted on the Downtown Eastside at about 5:45 and I had to wait five minutes as there was a short line up.  What struck me was the gentrification in the polling station.  Several of those voting in front of me were well turned out, middle class women in their twenties or early thirties.  They've probably purchased condos nearby.

Almost...not quite

A few months ago, I saw an interview with Jack Layton in which he announced, "I'm almost vegan."

On the campaign trail at Montreal's Schwartz Deli in April, he was photographed chowing down on a smoked meat sandwich.
