Tidbits from Both Sides of the Fight

Vote. Just Vote.

Since I was born, voter turnout to Canada’s federal elections has dropped from about 75% eligible voters casting ballots down to closer to 60%.

If you haven’t voted, go vote.

If you’re thinking of not voting, remember that you had your chance if we get a government you’re not happy with.

Check out this map:

Not that many darker green bits in the world, are there?  Those are the places with a stronger deomocracy than those other places in brown, red & black.

We’re pretty lucky that way.

Use the key tool you have as a citizen to keep government accountable.

Vote.
