Vote early… vote often

06.19.04

Tomorrow is the last chance to save your cities. So to residents of Anjou, Baie d’Urfé, Beaconsfield, Côte-St-Luc, Dollard, Dorval, Hampstead, Île-Bizard, Île-Dorval, Kirkland, LaSalle, Montreal-Est, Montreal-West, Pierrefonds, Pointe-Claire, Roxboro, Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue, Ste-Genevieve, St-Laurent, Senneville, T.M.R., and Westmount… make sure to take a moment tomorrow and exercise your right to vote. Unlike most elections, this one actually can make a real difference.

A particular shout-out to people living in places where the advance polling turnout was especially low… particularly my home-until-recently, Dollard des Ormeaux. I can’t vote there anymore but I would hate to see voter apathy result in a loss of this chance. Remember: under the system, staying home is effectively the same as voting no. So get out there.

Despite all the dirty tricks, threats, false information and propaganda that has tainted this campaign, one fact remains and that is that the mergers were imposed by steamrolling over democracy in order to placate the unions. And while Bill 9 isn’t a magic bullet, it will go a long way towards righting the wrongs and sending the government a strong message that the will of the people cannot be ignored.
