It's another Election - Will you Vote?

I hope you do.

Every year, every census, every election I'm reminded about the privileges we have and the sacrifices made for our Country by service men and women, (like my Grandfather), thoughtlessly putting themselves in harms way so we can enjoy the freedoms that make Canada a society to be proud of.

If you aren't sure it is worth it, or just plain weren't planning on voting, here's an archived blog post by the deceased Derek Miller - a friend of a friend who passed away last year. Terminally ill with Stage 4 colon cancer, he researched the issues, the candidates and made the herculean effort to get himself to the poll to vote, knowing it would be his last opportunity.

I'm sure you'll be able to take the time to mark your ballot on April 23. Won't you.
