Caribou stew, doughboys served with green beans. A nice change of plain fare. No garlic, spices, herbs, just the taste of caribou and the vegetables, some good.

As variety is the spice of life in food variety also applies in politics IMO.

Today is voting day for ordinary members in Nunatsiavut, Lake Melville and the Constituency for the rest of Canada. [If anyone can figure out the common sense in all of that please let me know].

Change is needed if the new NG government is to move forward. Change is also needed if the culture and language that was the basis for the implantation of the land claims agreement which led to the formation of Nunatsiavut is to be saved.

The two incumbents in Nain are old and stale and next to useless; Lake Melville badly needs change as well, as to the other constituencies, I do not know enough of them to comment.

Update, 2:35'ish: People should get off their butts and go vote, not looking that good a turn out as off noon. Also the mail in ballot has been extended until Friday as only 600 ballots have been received from the 1750 sent out.

I have it on good authority that if you don't vote then you cant criticize the NG government, so there.
