Election fallout

A reaper's work is never done.
While the country debates the merits of it's new government they fail to notice the rue victims here, the voters. Now I'm not talking about the damage that may or may not be done to the average taxpayer in the wake of the new government, but rather the elderly voters among us. Here in Hamilton we had one voter casualty. Will this rise with each election until fear grips us all on our way to the polling stations?

Apparently this poor old soul had voted and was getting into the waiting car of her sister, when it was put into gear and reversed. She was knocked down by the still open door and rolled underneath the car, with obvious consequences. Her sister felt a bang as she had hit a parked car and pulled forward to check the damage, running her poor sister over a second time. In our warning crazy culture will the next election's registration cards bear a warning about voting and cars? My wife was nice enough to pick me up since I carpool and was dropped off to vote. I breathe a sigh of relief when I realize how close I came to death that day. Voting may never be the same again! Only time will tell. I'm just glad I can still walk to the polls.

Ha! First again!

This is a terrible story. Canada is obviously a dangerous place to be.

hey look pete... why should Canada be any different when it comes to voting than the US? But on the positive side... if the political parties are the same as ours... when you do die, at least you'll still vote on election day. :)

Was it murder? Is it possible the sister who ran her sister over was angry that her sibling voted against her, essentially, cancelling her vote out?

At least you know your wife still has some fondness for you. Not only did she pick you up but she didn't run you over, not even once. That's true love!
