Get out and do it

Everyone in Canada, over the age of 18, should do it today. You should do it for the people who fought and died to keep democracy safe so you can do it; if you are a woman, you should do it because people had to struggle damned hard to get us the right to do it (less than a hundred years ago); if you are an aboriginal, you should do it because again people had to fight for your right to do it (less than fifty years ago); and you should do it because people are struggling all over the world for the right to do it. Somewhere, today, someone wishes he/she could have the right, someone will die for the right to do what you may take for granted. So, for the love of God, people, as pissed off as you may be with the politicians, as sick of the process as you may be, today take the time to VOTE.
