This week there is an election here in Canada. With the election in the United States there has been lots of talk about voting and party principles. I read this blog a week or so ago about a woman who is strongly against abortion and therefore voting for the party which opposes it. It does make me question the reasons to vote.
Generally I am quite happy about what the conservatives have done over the past year. Lowering the GST puts money back in my pocket, the Universal Child Tax benefit gives us money for childcare the way we want it. But I am very concerned about the enviroment and I don't think he has done a lot for it.
The question is how do you vote? Based on how a party has done in the past, on what they want to do for the future or one one issue that I feel strongly about.....
