Election Fever??!

Election day in Canada is October 14, 2008. Somehow though, I don't feel the fervor and the excitement that our neighbours south of the border are enjoying or enduring. However, nonetheless, as citizens of this nation, we have a civic duty to elect (who we think is) the most responsible and reliable leader for our country.

I know many people who do not vote because they do not see or understand how it affects them. It's such a shame, as these and many people throughout our nation do not realize that, as consumers, the people we elect into office determine what we can spend, how it is spent and many times where we spend it. The laws and policies that are passed in parliament affect, -in some way or another- every single person in Canada. That is why it is our responsibility to familiarize ourselves with the different parties (PC, Liberals, NDP, Green Party,Bloc Québécois), see what their agendas are and then look at our own issues and see which party will best represent our cause. If you have any concerns or questions, don't hesitate to contact the party offices.

Voting is not just a privilege, it is a right, and a right every Canadian should take seriously. On October 14, 2008, get out there, cast your ballot and let your voice be heard.

Happy Shopping!!

Voting is important. We choose the leader of the country, consequently the way of life, the way the economy will be organized and much more. Much depends on the society's will.
