democracy in action

October 21, 2019

it’s election day in Canada!

I did – in the advanced polls last weekend

they weren’t handing out stickers so this is from a provincial election in 2009

stuck in a page of my journal

I will be so-o happy when this divisive, negative, campaign is over

two grandchildren are 18 this year and the families have encouraged and supported them to register and become informed

this yard sign says it all

and now we wait – the poll numbers are so close it is anybody’s guess who will win

 each vote counts

just vote!

    Yay for voting! I’m always shocked that people don’t use this power . . .

    Good for you! Exercise those democratic muscles. If everyone did, the world would be a different place.

      Kate – I’ve voted in every municipal, provincial and federal election since I was old enough (when I was in country). That’s a lot of politicians! Very pleased that both grandchildren are interested and have voted, need to start them young.

        Same here. I can’t understand why you wouldn’t try and take control of your own future by making your vote count. In any case, it’s obligatory in Australia…

        Kate – yes, I know it is legislated, not sure how I feel about that. Like you, we have a large country with the population concentrated in the southern cities and vast rural areas. So now we have a minority gov’t with 2 provinces not having a single member in the winning party. It is going to be an interesting, rocky time.
