Plumb Pie

Doug Plumb: Delicious
With insignificant funds and hopeless political support, sometimes it’s the earnest fringe candidate campaigns in our by-elections that have the most charm. Toronto Centre aspirant (and political opponent of Campaign Confidential‘s Chris Tindal) Doug Plumb has been taping-up these breezy home-made slogans downtown, and while this sign may not even mention the party he’s running for, there’s a quaint spunk in comparing himself to a down-home dessert.
Other flyers feature the rather unimaginative call to “Be Canadian,” and they don’t allude to Plumb’s cranky conspiracy-theorist views on 9/11 and global warming (an inside job and a swindle, respectively), but grammatically incorrect political signs slapped together with Times New Roman and a roll of packing tape have a certain rootsy je ne sais quoi, n’est-ce pas?
