Harpoon land

For those follow Canadian Federal Politics as we move closer to our fixed date election, here is a wonderful, insightful, funny site that makes politics more interesting and hopefully will get the younger (under 35) voters interested and more willing to vote. From their home page:

Finally, an emotionally tolerable way to be well-informed. We’re turning all the depressing news you’ve been guiltily avoiding into a glorious hot mess of Kanye gifs, otters holding hands, dad jokes, factoids, cartoons, and sexy 4am ideas we don’t understand the next morning. Follow us, friend us, and find out what our prime minister’s been up to. You could win something!

Who’s Behind Harpoon
We’re an eclectic bunch of comedy lovers, heart-warming united by disgust for our exceptionally bad overlord. Our members include twenty somethings with hangovers, embittered cartoonists, nicely-dressed business people, Order of Canada recipients, one disgruntled ad exec, a lawyer, an environmentalist, a craft brewer, and a Good Wife addict — none of whom have anything in common, except wanting to get more people fired up about Canadian politics…and Harper pied in the face.

This part we’re serious about. Harpoon is a strictly non-partisan campaign. We are not, and will never be, affiliated with or financially supported by any political party. People from any political party or background are welcome to participate and share. While we don’t pretend to like Harper, we’re passionate advocates for civic engagement, and we encourage every Canadian — especially young ones — to hit the ballot box and vote for whoever they want. Even if he does have the most terrifying hairpiece* of all time.

*We are internally divided on whether his hair is, in fact, a hairpiece.
