Every Voice Counts
I vote because I believe Canada can do better for the world. I believe that Canadians care about other people who struggle through life in their own country and around the world, they care about the environment and they care about the rule of law and democracy and freedom. So I vote because people have died for this right and there is so much left to do. Even though we are a wealthy and safe country, there is so much we can improve for ourselves and for the world.
I vote because I respond to and am guided by this wonderful idea, which I saw written in stone on a public building many years ago: "A DEMOCRACY DEPENDS UPON THE ACTIVE PARTICIPATION OF THE CITIZENS." Voting is part of that responsibility and right. Another part is getting informed and following the issues and developments which course through our lives to make a better society and country.
