VOTE….Do it! Today is Federal Election day in Canada and many of us (I would hope most of us) will be heading to the polls to cast our vote for the cadidates of our choice. I have finally decided just this morning who I will vote for and feel pretty confident that I have weighed the platforms presented and will chose what I feel is best for our country. VOTE…in some years we’ve had not so fabulous voter turn out but I’m urging everyone to take the 20 minutes it takes to walk to your local polling station and VOTE because this is an important election….important for you and important for me.
I’m impressed with how quietly our election process rolled out in comparison to the current American election scheduled for November. THe campaigns of potential Prime Minister’s only began just over a month ago and while there were some nasty comments and things that took place it has been nothing to the magnitude of mudslinging going on in the U.S.A. I’m not sure how I’d feel living in the United States with such a drawn our process and much appreciate our quicker, quieter ideas about electing the head of our country. I think everything in the USA is BIG! So I guess chosing a president is a grand affair too! I can only imagine how much money McCain and Obama have had to spend on their campaigns!
Anyways, I’m not here to talk American politics….I’m here to remind all Canadians to VOTE, not because its your right….but because its important! DO it!
