(UPI) A dog in Canada is seeking to take a bite out of local government by running for mayor of a Newfoundland city.
Dog trainer Glenn Redmond on Sunday 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.Copyright 2017 by United Press International
