Dog runs for mayor of Cana­dian town

Daily Trust - - BUSINESS -

Finn took to the cam­paign trail to en­cour­age res­i­dents about his plans to help busi­ness, im­prove taxes and ex­press his com­mit­ment to pub­lic works projects

Adog in Canada is seek­ing to take a bite out of lo­cal gov­ern­ment by run­ning for mayor of a New­found­land city.

Dog trainer Glenn Red­mond has shared a video pro­mot­ing Finn the Aus­tralian cat­tle dog as a new can­di­date for mayor of St. John's.

Finn took to the cam­paign trail to en­cour­age res­i­dents about his plans to help busi­ness, im­prove taxes and ex­press his com­mit­ment to pub­lic works projects.

"Finn be­ing an Aus­tralian cat­tle dog, he's a tire­less worker, he doesn't know when to stop. He will work day and night to get things done," Red­mond told the CBC.

The dog trainer added his four-legged may­oral can­di­date is uniquely equipped to pro­vide "hands on" so­lu­tions to a num­ber of the city's is­sues.

"Pot­holes [are] a big is­sue for Finn, as well as snow clear­ing and stuff in the win­ter­time. He's an avid walker, and th­ese are cer­tainly things that [would be] con­cerns for him," Red­mond said.
