Today is election day in Canada.
I have to go to a luncheon today, so I'm going to vote this morning. And then I'll feel sick for the rest of the day, worrying that we're going to get stuck with Stephen Harper and the Conservatives again because:
1. People of a certain age can't see past his sweater vest to his stony heart.
2. Perhaps the rest of the country agrees with Stephen Harper that Canada only goes as far east as the Quebec-New Brunswick border.
3. Those of us who really don't want the Conservatives imposing their right wing, narrow-minded policies on all of us aren't out there voting in droves like we should be.
If you're Canadian and you're reading this, I hope that you've voted. I want to hear from you if you have. I don't want to know how you voted, just that you did.
*if only that were allowed. If only we could vote people OFF the island.
