Election Day in Canada

***Warning - Rant Alert****

So I voted. I did my civic duty and cast my vote. I hoped I could make a difference, but the Conservative party was re-elected in my constituency :( I guess a lot of old farmers still like the conservatives where I live. I was torn between voting Liberal or NDP, and I ended up voting Liberal. It wouldn't have made much of a difference, Liberals had 6% of the vote in my riding, and NDP had 20%. The incumbent won with 68% of the vote.

I guess my vote (and the 32% of the other voters) did our job by letting him know not EVERYONE voted for him. That doesn't help me sleep tonight, knowing Stephen Harper has a majority government in Canada :( Boo on us. Maybe the world really is ending soon. Link to The End of The World

  1. It is not the end of the world. Politicians will continue to go along just as they always have. On the plus side we do not have to go to the polls again for four years, yay!!!
