A Clear Path to Democracy
Well THAT was inspiring!!
I had my first volunteer meeting with my local Liberal Member of Parliament.
There I sat with about 25 fellow Kingstonians listening to a Queen's Law student in her early 30's who has been thru 30 or 40 elections in her life.
Holy moly .... inspire much?
Other than a few young peeps on the phones, I was the
youngest in the volunteer pack.
We'll be canvassing our areas of the city on Monday
encouraging our Liberal neighbors to vote.
As our speaker so eloquently said (and yes it brought tears to my sappy eyes) ...
we want to make the clearest path to democracy.
And ... by doing this, I am now a part of the super awesome victory party where I'll sit around with fellow Liberals and await the election results.
This is my first time taking part in an election, and it's a monumental one to say the least. If I could feel more patriotic, I'm not sure how.
Thank you to MP Mark Gerretsen and his team for making this Canadian feel connected once again.
Now .... let's get things done eh?
Do you want to vote, but can't get a ride?
We have volunteers to drive you there. There's no reason to not fill out that ballot. You might as well .... it's there waiting for you!
