Hasbro’s first PR campaign of the year is a new edition of Canadian Monopoly. And as night follows day, boredom follows Free Parking house rules, and fisticuffs follows landing on Park Place, Canadian mayors and the mainstream media are urging citizens to rise to the occasion and vote to put their various townships on the board during the next 41 days.

Which is quite sensible, because after Jerusalem landed a spot on the World Monopoly edition, I personally got six new sports cars and a million bucks.

The “I have nothing better to do” pimp watch includes Thunder Bay, Sault St Marie (and again), Windsor, Kawartha Lakes (and again), Medicine Hat, St Johns, Ottawa, London (and again), Brantford (and again), Belleville, Oshawa, Kamloops, and Moose Jaw. Personally, I’m rooting for Chilliwack (currently in 19th place).
