Today I finally finished the nomination process. While infinitely better than the Federal nomination, I still consider the process and bureaucracy to be way over the top. Democracy should not require hours of effort and paperwork – a truly free and democratic process would require little more than a signature, and perhaps verification of citizenship.
Regardless, the i’s have been dotted, the t’s crossed, and the hoops duly jumped through. My name will be on the ballot on October 6th in Oshawa. I encourage everyone to come out and vote. Preferably for me, but for someone at least.
Thank you to all the people who consented to sign my nomination form, as well as to the Management of the Metro at Rossland and Wilson in Oshawa, who permitted me to use their store front freely.
