My family has lived in the Ontario, Canada riding of Simcoe-Grey for +50 years.
To say you could run a dog as a Conservative member of parliament ( MP), and it would win, is not an understatement, at all. As an example, a provincial NDP candidate once asked me in the 90s: “Hey Les, you wanna run next time?” Too bad I had an ambition-ectomy.
My kids are ribbed mercilessly when I routinely plant an orange sign on my lawn.
I retired from a reputable “career” when I was about 34.
Me giving career advice… Droll 😉
