NaWiPoMo: The 1913 Grand Council Elections

The 1913 Grand Council elections took place in February 1913, for the purpose of choosing the Fifteenth Grand Council of the Confederation of North America. The elections returned a majority for the People's Coalition for the fifth time running.

Incumbent Governor-General Albert Merriman had enjoyed an uneventful first term, during which the C.N.A.'s gross national product increased a minimum of six percent each year. A victory by the People's Coalition in the 1913 elections was so certain that Sobel literally never mentions them. Thus, there is no information concerning the partisan makeup of the incoming Grand Council or even who the Liberal Party nominee was.

I am going to have to hunt down this book... you offer such tantalizing glimpses.

How are the basenjis?

Aha! My first victim, er, convert! My cunning plan begins to bear fruit!

The basenjis are both fine, still active and healthy despite their advancing years. And thank you for asking.
