I can hardly wait until March 24th when all the NDP leadership candidates stop compaigning for my vote. My phone has been ringing off the hook with recorded messages from different candidates and their various supporters, telling me why I should vote for them, or inviting me to participate in electronic town halls and other events.
Maybe if there were fewer candidates, or if they weren’t so prolific, it wouldn’t be as disruptive and annoying. It’s getting expensive, too, since I pay for all my weekday minutes, including voice mail. Honestly, when I joined the party I didn’t realize that my phone number would be given to all the candidates. I’m not sure I would have signed up had I known that. (The barrage of email from the candidates is considerably less annoying than the phone calls, but it’s excessive too.)
Anyway. Just one more week to go.
