Jack takes the prize!
I should have announced this much earlier, but better late than never, I suppose:
Jack Layton is 2006's winner of the Most Annoying Canadian!
|(Picture shamelessly ripped off from Le Cornichon.)|
With 37% of the vote, Jack dominated this competition from the beginning, handily beating other annoying Canadians such as David Suzuki, Belinda Stronach, and Colleen Jones. I suspect the timing of the vote may have had some impact on the results, as Jack had been making noises against the Canadian mission in Afghanistan during the beginning of October. If the 2006 MAC voting was being held today, perhaps Gilles Ducheppe or Stephane Dion would have taken the prize. But no matter, Jack is richly deserving of the award, and the people have spoken.
