Always game for a new experience I have moved on from acting as a golf marshal to an election official in Ontario. A few months ago it was for the Ontario provincial election. The polling station was in a condominium party room which was comfortable with a fridge and a microwave and immaculate bathrooms. Yesterday it was at Glenview Public Senior School in Toronto. A strait no stop 13-hour day in a school gym with harsh fluorescent lighting throughout used as a torture technique to disorient by interrogators throughout the world. The school was crumbling apart having been built in 1966. Classrooms looked like holding pens and offices looked more like secure guard outposts than anything else. Pity on these poor children. Pity on us poor election workers. If I work in the next federal election, I hope it will be a Ritz-Carlton. It is not easy working in a building that looks like a juvenile detention centre both in and out.
