Rant about voting (in Canada)

luckytroll posted this nifty rant about Canadian politics and voting in Canada. Particularly quoteworthy lines:
just for the record, I will not be voting Liberal or Conservative in this election [....]

Ill probably vote either NDP or Green - NDP because I feel that Jack gives a shit, and that he can do a lot to make Canada the kind of country that gives a shit. Green because sustainability is ultimately the only option for us as a species, and the nation that figures it out first, will be the one that everyones descendents will want to live in.

And to all you people out there who are not going to vote - well,come June 29, If you dont vote, then shut up, because you could have made a difference.
(After 2000, I can’t imagine ever voting Green, but Green parties are fairly decentralized, and I doubt the Canadian Green Party bears any responsibility for Quisling’s Nader’s candidacy.
