Voting today was the same as the last few elections I had the privilege of attending, more or less the same demographics of locals casting their ballets. I saw a lot of older people out casting their ballets, and as expected, few young voters braving the huge lines ups and chaos at the polling station. The truth is, hardly anyone was out there, and that is not my over exaggeration and the youngest person I saw was probably in their mid 30s. I saw maybe 10 people, not including the Election Canada Officials, throughout the school gymnasium. Factor in to that I had voted around 12 noon and the working-class are still working and most business people are still out and about.
Like always, I will turn off the television and concentrate on getting a good nights sleep before I venture out to newsstand to read the results. My prediction is that the Conservatives will get elected. I am not happy about that, but the Liberals did screw themselves in the public view with scandal after scandal after scandal. I look at the positive sides of things. With a Conservative government, this means good things for me because of the hard-line stance on crime they usually will take. Conservatives are like George Bush of the US, and with the religious perspective on society they have, they will most certainly increase the laws against lower class citizens spelling out more jobs for Criminologists and law enforcement in this mad made war. Sad, but it seems the way of the political Right.
I guess I will wait and see who the next Prime Minister will be.
