Stop the Steal! Oh, wait, this is Newfoundland!

As an outbreak of variant-laced COVID cases hits Newfoundland and Labrador, which has thus far largely managed to avoid the pandemix crisis that is laying the rest of the country low, the province has had to pivot on a dime to allow for all-mail-in voting in the provincial election, and to extend the deadlnes to accommodate the changes.

I was waiting for anguished cries of "Stop the Steal! Stop the Steal!",  until I realized, wait, this is Canada! There has been no outcry, no recriminations. There is absolutely no expectation of wholesale fraud. People are just getting on with it as best they can't. How different we are from the Americans!
