Vancouverites, and most of the lower mainland, is going through a civic election.
What I’ve learned from my 10 years living here in Vancouver is that its residence here have strong political opinions. We are quick to put our fists up when we disagree with how the government is running our city, yet when it comes to vote civic elections have an average of about 30% of the registered voters coming out and casting their ballots. I really have a hard time with people who have all these political complaints and opinions and yet they do not vote. If you are not going to vote, you’ve given up your right to complain on how things run in the city.
To all those at Occupy Vancouver, I hope you are registered and going to vote this week. This is your chance to be heard, not voting gives you no right at to protest!
To all those who have an issue with a candidate, use you power and not vote for them and vote for someone who you believe in that best represents you and your belief. If you don’t like any of them, you should think long and hard and run next time.
Be informed by going to the Vancouver Elections website and reading up on who is running. This is your time Vancouver to walk the walk, not just talk about it.
