I love my adopted country of Canada. And I am proud to vote each and every time there is an election. It is a civic responsibility that I take very seriously. Rose and I went over the our polling station this morning about 9:00 am. And per usual, I teared up a little after voting.
And in catching up on my feeds this morning, I also teared up when I watched the video below over at Brendan's blog (and read the original words that the commercial riffed on - that was something I didn't know). Yes, it's a beer commercial. But these are the things I (heart) about Canada.
So, if you are Canadian and haven't voted yet, get to it!
- Find Your Polling Station
- Bring the Right ID! (Rules changed this year - make sure you check before you go!)
- Election hours are staggered, so make sure you get to your polling station on time!
Oh, and in case you're still not sure who to vote for, check out CBC's snapshot of the political parties and their stance on key issues.
