Election Day in Canada

"I am a Canadian,
a free Canadian,
free to speak without fear,
free to worship God in my own way,
free to stand for what I think right,
free to oppose what I believe wrong,
free to choose those who shall govern my country.
This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold
for myself and for all mankind."

Prime Minister John G. Diefenbaker, from the House of Commons, Debates (on the Canadian Bill of Rights), July 1, 1960.



"WTH?
What do you mean cats aren't allowed to vote?
Who decided this was a good idea?
It must have been a dog-lover."

Magoo, from the Litter Box, Complaints on the Quality and Frequency of the Stinky Goodness, October 14, 2008

    Cats can't vote in the UK either, which actually doesn't matter when you look at the state of our current politicians. Cats would not vote for any of them, even if they were allowed.

  5. I agree ... there is something amiss, for sure. I guess we'll just have to sway the opinions of our Moms and Dads so they vote our way for us.
