Do you remember this movie?
Do you recall the premise of the trilogy? Here’s a quick recap – Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) has the opportunity to travel back in time in order to influence the future. Seems plausible no? Maybe not until I win a Delorean on eBay, but no matter. Marty’s circumstances in Back To The Future are quite relevant to your role in Monday’s municipal election.
The citizens of Ottawa need not source a Delorean or befriend a mad albeit, lovable scientest in order to change their future. They need only commit to voting on Monday…for anybody, but Larry. Why anybody but Larry? Do you recall the following quote from Back To The Future?
Biff Tannen: Hello? Hello? Anybody home? Huh? Think, McFly. Think!
How do you go about voting? Great question! Check out the City of Ottawa’s Election 2010 website for all the information you need to vote.
It’s pretty simple. You will be asked a maximum of three questions:
1) Who is your choice for mayor?
2) Who is your choice for councillor?
3) Who is your choice for School Board trustee? (this may or may not show up).
That’s it. Easy peasy right? One last thing – DON’T FORGET GOVERNMENT ISSUED ID!
Trouble getting to a voting station? No problemo! Call almost any candidate running for office and s/he will have a volunteer there with a vehicle so quick, it would make Blueline blush!
Need a crash course on who is running in your neck of the woods? No worries my friend! This pug has you covered. Check out this blog post for all the information you would need.
Why bother voting? I could rant for hours, but I will keep it brief. Ottawa deserves better. Your individual neighbourhood deserves better. Your kid / niece / nephew / buddy’s kid / kid down the street deserve better. Your deserve better and your vote can help make that happen!
Have any other comments, or quetions? Email me. Comment below or Tweet it up. This Pug is putting it into high gear this weekend.
Puggy high fives to everybody!
