Danaye's Daily Dose for Monday, October 18th
Today is Election Day in Calgary! Voting Stations open up at 8:00 this morning and run until 8:00 tonight and polls say that there is a virtual tie between the front runners. If you’re heading out to vote today, a couple things to be aware of: the ballot is MASSIVE. It’s not just a little post it size piece of paper like you got in the federal election. It’s two huge pieces of paper, thanks to the 28 mayoral candidates.
You’ll be voting for your mayor of choice, city councillor, school board trustee, senators as well as a few other referendum questions including fluoridation of city water, whether or not to end time change and stay on current daylight savings time.
CTV News Calgary reached out to each of the 27 candidates running to be mayor in this month's municipal election.— Jordan Kanygin (@CTVJKanygin) October 4, 2021
You can see all of their answers in the link below, and I'll retweet the video responses in this thread. @CTVCalgary #yyccc #yycvote
Alberta's two major cities are to bring in new mayors during municipal elections today after being led by Naheed Nenshi in Calgary and Don Iveson in Edmonton for multiple terms. https://t.co/iQVSohKYFk— CTV Calgary (@CTVCalgary) October 18, 2021
There are only five city councillors running for re-election, so starting tomorrow city council is going to look VERY different. Mayor Nenshi wraps up 11 years on the job and shared some final words on the election on his social media.

It’s a very exciting day in the city and while some of us will be staying home to watch election coverage on the edge of our seats, a bunch of other people will be heading out to take another seat for the first time in loonnnng time! Flames Home Opener is tonight, regular season hockey is BACK AT THE DOME for the first time since March of 2020!

Hula hooping is not one of them.

Ryan Reynolds has announced that he's taking a break from acting. He posted from the set of his new Christmas movie Spirited saying that he was going to take a sabbatical from making movies. He didn't say how long he'd be away for but in his Insta-Story he posted the definition for sabbatical that said it can last anywhere from 2 months to a year and said he'll be spending time with his kids.
