Anyone is welcome to submit a Guest Blog Entry to torontomike.com. I received the following submission earlier today.
I just want to thank my fellow Canadians for making a wise choice last night. It is nice to know that I still live in a country that reflects my morals and values. Oh Canada!
Amen my brother. Amen.
It seems like only two weeks ago the polls were predicting a Conservative minority. Around that time, I wrote this entry in which I expressed my fears that the Conservatives could actually win this election. Shortly thereafter, Stephen Harper confidentally proclaimed his party would in fact win a majority. It was then that I wrote this entry and pleaded with my fellow Canadians to do the right thing. Then, just a week ago, I wrote this entry in which I wrote "Recent Liberal scandals and mismanagement have many looking at the Conservative Party as a way to send a message and teach the Liberal Party a lesson. I fully understand this unwillingness to give the Liberals another vote, but the alternative is frightening. We can't cut off our nose to spite our face."
In the end, we did the right thing. One of my favourite things about Canada is the fact that we're an open minded progressive nation. I've always considered us to be proactive rather than reactive and our liberalism a trait admired by the free world. O Canada!
