Hallelujah! OneCity injects some musical energy into the Vancouver civic election campaign

    1 of 2 2 of 2

      Elections don't have to be full of dreary panel discussions where candidates stick to talking points in half-empty gymnasiums.

      But that's what we usually get from political parties running candidates for all levels of government in Canada.

      Thankfully, OneCity Vancouver has broken from the pack by rejigging a Canadian standard by Trooper.

      The nascent left-wing party's rendition of "We're Here for a Good Time" includes new lyrics that will hit home for any millennial in Vancouver.

      Check it out. And while you're at it, admire the cleverness of Vancouver comic Charlie Demers, who's the guy in the hat.

      Other performers include Brasstronaut's Tariq Hussain, Mark Beatty of Candela and the Be Good Tanyas, Corbin Murdoch of the Nautical Miles, and lawyer and folksinger Elin Sigurdson. It was filmed by Kevin Eastwood and produced by bringthemusic.ca.
