Monday! Go vote!



So we're a little nerdy over here at Nokomis. We listen to the Canadian recording of the Phantom of the Opera every two weeks or so at the studio, we have long conversations about cheese and some of us, not naming any names, may have even dressed as our dungeons and dragons character during games. But you see we embrace and cherish our inner-nerds, we know they make us richer and better people.

Thus I feel no shame in letting everyone know that I spent my Saturday night eating (many) chips and watching a previously-taped vhs recording of the Alberta provincial candidates debate with some friends. I'd missed watching it the first time around as it was aired the same evening as our grand opening party. I'm glad I finally got a chance to see what the parties vying to be our province's next government in this Monday's election had to say however. You can link to their websites here to find out for yourself. Though one could argue Alberta is headed for more of the same no matter what happens during the vote, I still feel it is so very important for everyone to take advantage of their right to express their opinion--we don't get many chances to do that in this province.

You're smart, and you care about things, and you have ideas of what kind of world you want to live in. You know what's good for you and the people that matter to you. So please, make sure you go vote tomorrow, Monday March 3rd. Let's help shape our future ok?
