Hi, dear American friends, readers, colleagues,
Tomorrow you are having a major election. If you haven't already, be sure and go out and vote.
Now, you might say off the bat that you didn't tell me who to vote for, or even to bother going out and doing it, in our federal election of last year. And that is true. But the United States is an important country to the rest of us in the world, and perhaps most of all to your two closest neighbours. Your president does, after all, have access to the nuclear button. Plus some effect on the world's largest economy. And there is nothing any of the rest of us can do about our mutual changing climate, if you don't help too.
I am not here to tell you (suggest) to whom (or whoms) you cast your vote, but I am going to link to two sources up here in the Great White North.
(The Globe and Mail is Canada's National Newspaper. Corporate owned, conservative, it endorsed S. Harper and the Conservatives in our last election)
