I do so love my satellite dish and it’s time-shifting feature. Less than 15 minutes before the polls close out east – although, I believe they’re already closed in Newfoundland – and I’ll soon be able to watch all the punditry and polling goodies I can handle.
At the moment, I’m listening to George Stroumboulopoulos give a run down of his opinions of the 37 day election campaign. Yes. I’m willingly watching CBC with no Dr. Who or Torchwood in sight. Peter Mansbridge and company will soon be handed the reigns.
CTV and Global don’t seem to be running coverage until 7pm. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised by this. The Maritimes are often ignored by the “East”.
I’m off to get my popcorn and beer ready. Oh, and to call my mom.
Happy election viewing everyone.
Upperdate: *GRRRR* Elections coverage is blacked out. At exactly 5:30pm my TV went grey and a nice little message re: Elections Canada forbidding elections coverage in areas where polls aren’t closed is now being displayed on screen. Someone please explain to me how Elections Canada can declare vote swapping/sharing (strategic voting by proxy) legal but learning of the results early is not. Bah! It’s not like this information isn’t going to be available on the Internet through non-Canadian housed blogs.
