Today's the day when we can do an amazing thing here in Canada, something that we often take for granted. We can vote. So, take advantage of that fact, and get out and vote today. It's fun - you get to spend time under the fluorescent lights of your local community centre for a few minutes, see who else is in your neighbourhood, shoot the shit about the shops opening up and the buildings being constructed on your street, and, most importantly, impact the change you want to see in your country.
I don't know who would come around saying that it's a perfect system - it's not. Not yet, at least. But perhaps part of changing that system is placing a vote for the party who you think will best lead the charge for change in the system. Non-participation isn't the answer - participation and action, even the simplest of actions which includes putting a ballot in a box, will lead to the change you want to see.

And if you're thinking of not voting because it doesn't matter, why not take a look at the following page, and scroll down to the bottom, and read about what each party thinks about that, and go out and vote today based on that? thethunderbird.ca/elxn42/millions-of-canadian-votes-dont-matter
Do it. Enjoy it. Savour it. Change it. It's going to be a great Monday!
