On May 2, Canadians head to the polls (again) to vote for new Members of Parliament and ultimately a new Prime Minister.
I have no desire to talk politics on this blog, however, I think at the very least I have to say this:
Read some of the policies of the parties. Ask questions. Explore facts and figures. Annie at Phd In Parenting has a series on her blog outlining party information and asking some thought provoking questions. Yes, there will be partisan positions in the comments, but it’s a platform to get you thinking at least.
On Twitter and Facebook, you can follow #MomtheVote and see what other mothers and women are thinking about this election (but again, there will be partisan comments).
The point? It’s our duty and right to vote. Don’t spoil your ballot. And don’t say ‘it’s boring’ or ‘I’m not interested’. This requires our time.
I’m not asking or telling you who to vote for, I’m just asking that you make a decision and vote on May 2.
