On the front lawn of a house on Saskatoon's Acadia Drive is one of the more amusing political commentaries I've seen this election. There's a sign for each of the candidates running in the Saskatoon-Humboldt riding. There's also a sign that says "I'm confused." I would guess this is a statement that applies to a lot of folks who will be voting in this election.

There's a letter in today's Saskatoon Star Phoenix suggesting that voters send a message to politicians by not voting. I'm afraid that doesn't really work. After all a politician has no way of knowing why the people in his riding didn't vote. For all he knows they approve of his work, or are too lazy to vote. Its much harder to ignore who those who voted actually voted for.
