The campaign signs are back. On October 6, we were called to the voting booth once again, this time for the Ontario provincial elections.
I knew who I was not voting for (yes Conservative Party, I’m looking at you) but I was undecided between NDP and Liberal until the last minute. No matter what I ultimately decided, I wish political parties would stop polling me over the phone during dinnertime.
I’m probably the only one complaining about it but I do find campaigns too short. I’m not feeling I’m learning much about candidates’ respective platforms. It seems to be more a popularity contest than anything else. A little less time planting placards and signs everywhere and a little bit more time explaining their plans for Ontario would help.
Nonetheless, I was at the voting booth on October 6. It took me long enough to become a Canadian citizen, I use my right to vote. It’s a duty I enjoy and respect.
