Mike Harris - a Positive Outcome
10 years ago, the Mike Harris Conservatives were running for re-election in Ontario. Sadly, they won that election. But the 1999 provincial campaign was not without its positive spin-off effects.
Ten years ago, two students at the University of Ottawa were so upset with the policies of the Harris government that they were willing to schlep their way out to the outskirts of Ottawa on public transit to register to vote. It turned out to be their first date, as they spent the following afternoon together beside the Rideau Canal.
Who would have thought that Mike Harris would prove to be responsible for a gay relationship that has lasted for the past ten years? I'll always have a tiny soft spot for his administration, as it brought me together with my husband - ten years on, we're still together!
