Canadian expat Colleen Pendergast lives in Massachusetts and has a contrarian take on the personal lives of politicians. She thinks Americans care way too much and should focus on other questions.
This is part of our U.S. Election 2012: Canadians in America series - expats talking about life and politics south of the border.
In a year when Americans must choose between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, The Globe and Mail has reached out to Canadians living across the U.S. to offer a unique perspective on a pivotal election. In the coming months our expat group of 50 Canadians – chosen from hundreds of submissions to offer a wide range of perspectives – will answer your questions, offer up their insights through blog posts and join in on-line discussions. Their personal stories and perspectives may well challenge your assumptions about American society and politics.
