This is not a political blog. Nor am I the kind of person who is especially well versed in politics, so this post isn't a forum for me to voice my opinions on today's Canadian Federal Election.
Very simply, I'm writing to remind my Canadian readers to get out and vote.
It's a topic that is a bit of a departure from my usual subject matter on the connections between life and books, but it's a very important message to be shared.
In a time where social media is so prevalent I have been bombarded with opinions, complaints, and critiques about the government and the election. It's wonderful to live in a time where we can be so free to express these views in such an easily accessed public way, but voter turn-out is always shockingly low. Keep voicing your opinions, but also exercise your right to vote.
