Check this out: Federal Election Polls Live! I am determined to vote ABC, this time around, again. That means “Anything But Conservative.” As a writer, a humanitarian and someone who is passionate about the environment and believes in a Sustainable Economy, I have little choice but to ensure Canada does not remain in the hands of Stephen Harper and his henchmen. They are out to destroy everything Canada is built on.
I came across this poll at Place Speak, that asks the simple question: “Which Party will you support in the upcoming Federal Election? Of course, as election day approaches, pollsters across Canada want to know how the answer to this. The amazing thing about this poll is that it shows REAL TIME polling results that are neighbourhood specific in six cities across Canada! This means that I can make an instant judgment based on their polling results about which candidate is the most likely to take down Stephen Harper in my hood! This I love.
Of course, it will only be effective if all of you go there and vote and then spread the word around to your friends, family and workmates. I know I have not come across a Real Time Poll like this one. If you’re like me, you won’t be able to take your eyes off the Place Speak Live Map!
Anyway, have fun with this. I am.
Many thanks to the Alliance for Arts + Culture for their Election Toolkit, which arrived in my email box just now. I couldn’t wait to share it with all of you.
Although I realize that most of us would rather chew off our own arm before we’d mark a vote for Harper on our ballots, this sentiment is useless unless we get out and vote for Arts, Culture and the Environment. It’s so important to spread the word to friends, colloquies and family. Usually my mantra is “Show up at the page,” but today it’s “Show up at the Polling Station on October 19th, 2015.
Remember to vote with ABC in mind: Anything but Conservatives (Harper). Both the NDP and the Liberals have some amazing candidates and they need your support.
Even writing Harper’s name makes me feel nauseous…
But how do we, as responsible voters with an interest in the arts and in the environment, know how to vote strategically? I live in Vancouver Quadra — described in the media as a “toni(y) riding, or in other words, a riding made up of wealthy and therefore it is assumed, right-winged Vancouverites. Well, I know lots of people in my ‘hood, and not all are rolling in cash; many are artists, writers, university students, nannies and nine 2 fivers.
None of these people want to see a Conservative candidate representing Quadra, and there have been many discussions about who to vote for to avoid this ever happening. According to the website, VoteForEnviroment.ca, those of us concerned about the future of this planet need to throw our votes behind Joyce Murray — liberal candidate.
