Winning isn’t everything


Although I truly love The Coast's Best Of Halifax survey, I find it annoying when people campaign for the beloved winner's plaque. Just the other day, I had a hairdresser, massage therapist and aerobics instructor ask me to vote for them: "Don't forget to go to and vote for me! And ask everyone else to do the same!" Tacky. Eat some humble pie, please! Some go as far as to hand out photocopies of the ballot page for us to distribute among friends. I wish there was a place on your survey to vote for the person most heavily campaigning for it.
