  • Why you have no say in whom I vote for

    In Canada, we are generally considered to be a democracy. In Ontario, it is municipal election time in every municipality.

    We get to vote for the Mayor, City Council, School Board, Hob Goblin, Batman, etc.

    Ok, we don’t really get to vote for Batman.

    Recently I was telling a few people why I would not be voting for Barrie’s current Mayor Jeff Lehman. A few people told me I was not voting for him for the wrong reasons. However, at the end of the day, those reasons are my own, and we still live in a democracy. I could be totally lying, since it’s a secret ballot, and still vote for him. (Won’t happen, but theoretically it could.)

    I think dialogue is a wonderful thing, but we shouldn’t discourage people from voting for someone – because they’re voting!! I would rather have someone vote for the “WRONG PERSON”, than not vote at all.
