    Avril Lavigne or Sir John A MacDonald to get statue in Napanee
    Wednesday, September 5, 2012

    The bronze statue will stand 30 feet in height

    The Ontario town of Napanee is facing a challenging decision: A portion of the town's budget has been set aside to erect a bronze monument in honour of the town's most famous former resident but they are having trouble making their final pick. After drawing up a very extensive list, the choice has come down to two names: Sir John A Macdonald and Avril Lavigne. However, the question remains - who is more famous? Peter Oldring had the opportunity to speak to President of the Property Standards Committee Steve Wendy, the man now charged with making the final difficult decision; a decision that has only been made harder by the announcement of Lavigne's engagement to Nickleback front-man Chad Kroeger.

    Ooh! Tough choice! There's a poll at the link if you feel like casting your vote.

    I tried to do my part for Canada by voting for John A. MacDonald, but it's presently 81.67% to 18.33% in favor of Avril.

    ^Jesus Christ, how shameful. I'll vote and do my part to return that town to a bit of sanity though.

    I voted Avril because I love messing with online polls.

    But I was taking this very seriously!

    Actually, I was trying to figure out if the people voting for Avril were people messing with the poll or fans. I think she may have some of those, but I really don't know.

    Good God, it's now at 84% for Avril. I sincerely hope that it's primarily people messing with it and not seriously voting that way.

    I did my part and voted for good old Sir John A.
