Burnaby, BC, might soon have a Shithead for mayor

Joey “Shithead” Keithley, the head of DOA, Canada’s greatest punk band, has a head for politics. He’s tried to get elected several times in the past at the provincial level but those campaigns never worked out. Now he’s trying his hand at civic office.

He announced this week that he’ll be running for mayor of Burnaby, BC, on behalf of the Green Party.

Joey’s opponent is five-term mayor Derek Corrigan. The vote will take place on October 20.
