It's Up To Us

It's Up To UsWhoa nelly, it's gonna be close. The Liberals and Conservatives are neck and neck with the federal election only a couple of days away. It's anyone's ballgame.

As I see it, it's all up to us. By us, I mean Ontarians. Out west all I hear about are Conservative loving yahoos, in Quebec it's a mess and there aren't enough bodies to make a difference down east. That means it will be us in Ontario who choose the Prime Minister of Canada.

I shared this theory with a house guest from Winnipeg and she said it was typical Toronto arrogance. It's not, it's simply the way the numbers add up. With a representation by population system, Ontario is far more important than any other Canadian province. Lets face it, if Ontario turns blue, Stephen Harper will win. If Ontario stays even a slight shade of red, Paul Martin will remain in power. It won't matter what they thought in Alberta, New Brunswick and Manitoba.

So, it's all up to us. I've done my part and voted Liberal. Now it's your turn.
