We marked election night with an election-themed hash run. Three of the four candidates' after parties were being held downtown so we ran a route that dropped in to each of them. It was a fun idea but since the conservative majority was assured even before we dropped in to the first party, the festivities were pretty muted. The conservative party HQ was up at Mt Mac (too far to run) and really, it would have been the most entertaining to crash.

And then, as if to add insult to injury, when I came home at lunch today look what was waiting for me in the mailbox: the 2011 census. Not the long form census, of course, since it makes perfect sense to cancel a tool that was essential to business, researchers, planning and good public policy. Nah, this is a voluntary survey the methodology of which has never been tested. A perfect reminder of what I fear the next 4 years will bring. Awesome.
