We’re in the dog days of the election. The televised debates won’t start until tonight (French Language: 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. EDT on CBC Newsworld, Radio-Canada, CTV Newsnet and TVA and the English language goes tomorrow, 9 p.m. to 11 p.m.EDT) and most parties already released their policy platforms earlier in the week. So there’s only time for base partisan politics, spearheaded by a five year old speech and an attractive female with impeccable timing. Surely there are those who are tired of the whole dam election.
So get it over with – advanced voting happens this weekend on October 3, 4, and 6. If you’ve long ago made up your mind who you’re voting for (or Thanksgiving weekend is just too busy), this weekend is your weekend. Let’s get those participation numbers up.
