As I was walking down St. George Street a few minutes ago, someone handed me a flyer for a student from Ryerson University who’s running for Mayor.

Here’s a quote:

I am running for mayor because I feel that youths are not properly represented in politics and our opinions are always voiced but rarely taken seriously. As a student, I feel that working together and supporting each other as a whole; I can represent a larger, younger voice in politics

What can I say to that?

Sorry my friend, but there’s no way I’m going to vote for you if you don’t know how to use a semicolon properly. It’s a matter of principle.

The least you could have done was to have someone, preferably an English major, proofread your paper.

    And yes I'm catching up on reading your blog..
