I'm right now watching the election coverage of the Calgary municipal election over the Internet, with the hotly contested mayor's race there between Ric McIver, Barb Higgins and Naheed Nenshi.
Right now Nenshi, of all people, has a sizable lead, having run a campaign with heavy emphasis on social media. Not bad for a Muslim.
I dunno if he's going to win or not; there's still a long way to go. But win or lose, I gotta say, based on the results so far -- these Eastern Canadians who depict Calgary as some type of intolerant cowtown metropolis owe that city an apology. Never again can it be said that the city is full of rednecks and racists.
Especially if this result holds. Wow.
