Voter turnout brrrr

Go_vote Like everyone, I’m worried that a cold winter election will severely lower voter turnout. So I’m not waiting for Elections Canada to start a campaign urging people to get out and cast their ballots; I’m starting my own. Here's a button for anyone who wants it. Sure, it's negative, but it's non-partisan negative. Anger is an energy, as John Lyndon sang. Just link where you want.

My only worry with a low turnout is that seniors may not be able to get out and they are more likely to be conservative.

A low turnout with good weather is generally good for the CPC because apathetic people vote liberal.

A low turnout because of bad weather may hurt the CPC and that would be akin to nuclear war or the black (or liberal red?) plague.

Has anybody noticed that the conservative website has apparently been hacked? All of the buttons and links lead all to the same website. You can't get anything done there. I don't think it's a coincidence.

I agree....get motivated and vote!

Makes me warm all over just thinking about it.

Please try to spread the word outside the circle of committed conservatives.

I do hope that it is as cold as hell for the next few weeks.
