Vote for General Zod say dissatisfied voters

A Candidate We Can Support

(National Post)  -  For Ontario voters who don’t like the idea of a government run by Doug Ford, Andrea Horwath or Kathleen Wynne, another potential leader has emerged.
All he asks is that you kneel before him.
Election signs advertising “General Zod for Premier” have been spotted on lawns across Ontario. The super-villain played by Terrance Stamp in Superman II invaded and enslaved the Earth, but for a few dissatisfied voters the Kryptonian would make a better premier than any of the humans hoping to run Ontario. Every successful campaign needs a sign, and Zod’s use the familiar blue and white colour scheme of the Ontario Progressive Conservatives, and a slogan — “less evil than the other guy” — that appears to be a swipe at Ford.

Zoltan Hawryluk, a web developer from Toronto, designed the signs because he was disappointed by the selection of PC, Liberal and NDP signs on display in his Parkdale-High Park riding. A massive fan of Superman II — “it might be better than the first,” he said — Hawryluk thought what voters really need is a candidate who is honest about their intentions.
A candidate like Zod.
“You know upfront what he’s going to do,” Hawryluk said. “He’s going to enslave everyone. He doesn’t hide it.”
Kevin Proulx, a photographer and voter living in the Scarborough Centre riding, said he would like to support Horwath in the election, but he’s not impressed by the NDP’s candidates. Ford, who he calls “the Trump of the north” and Wynne “with the scandals surrounding the gas plants” aren’t great options either, he said.
So he’s thrown his support behind Zod and placed a sign on his lawn. He’s seen a few others — including one plastered on the side of a minivan driving beside him on the Don Valley Parkway in Toronto on Friday morning. He thinks an “underlying disillusionment from the public” explains why the fake campaign has been so successful.
The Liberals tried to win Proulx’s support back when campaign workers interrupted his dinner last night with a phone call.
“All I said was ‘All kneel before Zod’ and they hung up,” Proulx said in his best Stamp voice.

"I am General Zod. Your ruler. Yes, today begins a new order. Your lands, your possessions, your very lives, will gladly be given in tribute to me, General Zod! In return for your obedience you will enjoy my generous protection. In other words you will be allowed to live."
