Who’s winning the YouTube election? Four hilarious videos lend some insight
Elections are crazy times for many reasons, but one of our favourite parts of any big election is the onslaught of thousands of amateur video producers armed with little more than a laptop and a YouTube account. How is Canada’s latest election measuring up on this score? Here are some examples we’ve found that don’t involve works copyrighted by Yoko Ono.
