Yesterday was Federal Election Day here in Canada. It was probably one of our most talked about Federal elections to date, in part because Canadian citizens were very undecided on which candidate to vote for. Sadly voter turnout numbers did not reflect the amount of chatter leading up to Election Day.
For the record, I voted. It is a right I do not take lightly, regardless of how lame I may feel our choices are. It is still a choice I get to make. Yay for democracy!🎉
But I must say, I am glad it’s over. I was getting very tired of reading all of the hate mongering/mud slinging/non factual posts on social media and the like. Seriously people, check your facts before you toss your bullshit around for all to read.
Admittedly I am not a political kind of gal. While I certainly try to educate myself on the parties’ platforms, I refrain from inflicting my rants on social media. It’s just a personal choice.
So the results are in. Love it or hate it, we are stuck with a minority government.
There were many this morning who were not surprised at the outcome of our election and there were those who were pissed. Royally pissed. Still ranting on social media.
For the love of Pete, can we all just grow up & work together, regardless of which political party we align ourselves with? I personally don’t think there is one elected official who signs up for that job without the best interest of this country at heart.
The challenge, once in office, seems to be getting government colleagues to get out of the way of their own egos & work collectively towards common goals to ensure our country in its entirety is the best it can be.
So here’s an idea. How about we make an extra effort to encourage our government officials to work together for the common good of the citizens of Canada and play nice out on the playground? After all, isn’t peace keeping part of what we stand for as a nation?🇨🇦
With that said, while I welcome all comments & thoughts, I will not entertain bullshit here so if you feel the need to spew a bunch of crap, keep it to your social media profile please. I have most likely already blocked you from my feed anyway. Just sayin’!
