I talked at a cardboard cutout of my congresscritter tonight.

That was fun.

I forgot to mention it, but I went to a community meeting a week and a half ago in support of my local member of provincial parliament's attempt to pass a bill to remove the loophole which exempts newer buildings from the provincial rent control regime.

The essential content of this bill was announced yesterday as being co-opted by the provincial government today (as part of a wider housing cost control scheme), so hooray.

It's actually an old Canadian political tradition for the NDP to suggest or try and pass strongly leftist bills while in opposition, only to have them stolen or co-opted by a ruling Liberal party so the Liberals can take the credit (the most famous example being our universal health care). The system works! >:3
