A quick shout out to our Canadian readers. This is May 2 and that means today is general election day. Yes, again (the third since 2006) and the 41st since Confederation. My kids have been talking about this for weeks and while they’re a little young to be casting a ballot yet, our polling station is in their school and they’ll be accompanying my wife and me when we head over this evening.
Get out and vote.
To get you in the spirit, especially the younger set, here’s an inspirational rant from Rick Mercer. Note to American readers: watch this video anyway, it’s only a minute and a half and Rick is pretty funny guy. Link here (for those who can’t see the embedded video).
