Good morning Toronto Maple Leafs fans!

It's election day here in Canada and it's about time. Four weeks of this stuff and I'm done, thank goodness it wasn’t one of those grueling eight week elections. (Write an apology to the American readers here)

If you want to talk election you can do so over here. All the important discussions we have will be there;

  • Who would pull off cargo shorts best; Joe Clark or Kim Campbell?
  • Would a Bennet Buggy be faster than Jason Allison on a penalty shot?
  • Which PM would put ketchup on his hot dog?
  • Is it proper for a prime minister to run anywhere or carry an umbrella?
  • And which Riding would Carlton the Bear win easiest?

Aside from the election, we have not much else for you. Main camp is coming up, but otherwise the Leafs have been quiet.

The Traverse City tournament continued yesterday for the Leafs kids with a 7-3 win over the Dallas Stars prospects. The final game is today at 1 p.m. against Columbus. Our best Giffer Omar has plenty of highlights for you over on Twitter:

Alright folks, we’re 3 weeks from the season opener, and camp opens soon.

Enjoy your day, and do the voting thing. Even if you’ve already voted once, what are the odds you get caught, eh?
