Go vote !

If you are Canadian citizen and haven't voted in the advance polls, please do so on May 2nd. And if you are still undecided, just remember that this election is happening because the government that was elected last time was found in contempt of Parliament twice, not releasing information to allow Parliament to make informed decisions, and misleading Parliament.

Also remember that some countries don't even have a democratic process, and either have no voting, or rigged election with a single candidate.

Last but not least if you don't like the voting system, make sure you vote for the one would be more inclined to propose a reform. I personally have a few ideas in mind on how to improve it. It just not something that can be done in a day.

Canada abandoned Kyoto

Protest in the rain not far from the Canada Place during the Olympics® Vancouver 2010™, Vancouver, BC - February 13th 2010

I post this today for two reasons.

1. We are in an election period and the Cons must go. (this guy protest against them)

2. Today the city of Vancouver is trying to pass a bylaw that will seriously restrict the freedom of speech. A bit like during the Olympics, but more permanently.
