Many Canadians are cynical and disillusioned with the electoral process in this country, so much so that in the last federal election, only 61% of the electorate bothered to show up to vote. Many feel they haven’t been given any real choice, and are so distrusting of politicians that there really is no one to vote for.
Today could be one of the closest elections in Canada’s history and today every single vote will count. In a race that has been in a virtual dead heat almost since the get-go, for the first time in over a decade there is no clear winner going into the vote today.
Anyone who has read this blog recently knows who I’m supporting. Whatever your politics, I hope you get out today and exercise your hard-fought right to vote. It’s important.
