For my regular visitors, if you find that this blog hasn't been updating much lately, chances are pretty good I've been spending my writing energy on my companion blog. Feel free to pop over to Home is Where the Central Cardio-pulmonary Organ Is, and see what else has been going on.

Crunch time

Well, this is it, folks. The time for campaigning is over. Tomorrow is election day. Time to go out and vote!

It's been an interesting campaign. What began with many people apathetically predicting another Liberal win and saying "why bother voting at all?" has morphed into predictions of a Conservative win - possibly even a majority win. Sadly, I know too many people who, rather than risk a Conservative win, will take their votes away from the Greens or the NDP and give them to the the Liberals. As usual, though later in the game than last time, the Libs are saying that a vote for the NDP is a wasted vote. To me, the only wasted vote is a strategic one - voting for someone you don't believe in on the assumption that it will keep someone you don't want, out. Even worse, of course, is the vote that doesn't happen.

So get out there and vote, people. Vote for the person you believe in most. Vote for the party that best represents your views. Vote.

And by tomorrow night, we'll see just who it is the people of Canada have chosen.
