Door-to-Door Help

An idea I had is to go door to door offering to "do a kindness" or "help" whoever's inside. We'd refuse to accept any kind of repayment other than hugs and verbal thanks. However, we would have a big list of things people could do to express their gratitude, such as

  • coming with us on a future outing
  • doing a kindness for a certain friend or family member
  • volunteering at [place nearby that is looking for volunteers]

Sad but strange but true numbers - Canada's Voting System woes

Popular vote correlated to seats in the House of Commons:
the Bloc: 1% = 5 seats
Tories: 1% = 4 seats
Liberals: 1% = 3 seats
NDP: 1% = 2 seats
Green: 1% = ...0 seats

hooray for first-past-the-post, not! -_-
