Quebec Votes Today

So here we are once again another election, the second in as many months.

Unfortunately, I can see the bi-annual elections feeding voter apathy and holding it on the coldest day since last winter is not going to help the turn out at the polls. It's freezing out there!!!

CBC has a great meet the leaders and parties page so if you have any last minute questions before heading out to the polls.

Only in Canada would you find people complaining about having to vote. We're so spoiled.

Quebec Votes 2008… Again

Now that the 2008 American Presidential race (GObama) is over we get to look forward to the 2008 Quebec Provincial election! Exciting isn't it?

You wonder why there is so much voter apathy when it seems every two years there is either a Federal or Provincial election. So even though we just had a Federal election we now have a December 8th Provincial vote.

Local Montreal CTV News has more in depth coverage of the announcement. Unfortunately I can't embed it.

This morning I saw the first party sign up at 8am even before I had heard officially that the election had been called. One thing to be said, it's nice not having the USA's two year long campaigns. But I guess we make up for it by having elections more often. At least the campaign is only a few weeks long.

Remember to get out there and vote people!

Get Out And Vote!

Liberal Party
Conservative Party
Bloc Québécois
Green Party

As I was reminded by one of my VOX neigbours, today is the Canadian Federal Election and I am passing along the reminder as well.

No matter who you're voting for you only have till this evening to decide the future of our country for the next few years.

What's interesting is that the main three parties have also truing the the social media like their counterparts down south. You can follow Jack Layton of the NDP, the Liberal Party and Prime Minister Stephen Harper on the Twitter.

If you need some help deciding on who to vote for or who not to vote for, why not check out the main players sites to get an idea what they are about.

Liberal Party of Canada
Conservative Party of Canada
Bloc Québécois
Green Party of Canada
New Democratic Party of Canada EDIT corrected accidental omission

And swing by Elections Canada to see what pieces of identification you'll need at the polling station for instance.

Remember lots of people have died in horrible wars past and present so we can complain about how our votes don't count. Also, you might forget that our grandmothers or great-grandmothers couldn’t even vote if they wanted to. Don't waste this privilege and right. Get out there and vote!
