So I've done my patriotic chore and voted. I did this solely because I feel its not right to bitch about how stupid politicians are unless you have voted. The choices in my riding were dismal although the CPC support here is so strong that a dead monkey would win for them.
While I've believed ever since the writ was dropped that this election was nothing more or less than a vanity project for the dumbest Trudeau put on earth and that calling an election in the middle of a pandemic was proof positive that he is the dumbest, I didn't realize the true extent of the stupidity until I actually got to the polls.
Ours was in a community centre where all the different polls had to funnel through a small entry room were we were all held up until our poll was free. We were then funneled through a narrow doorway where you were checked off and recorded for contact tracing (my guess is there will be a lot of calls in a week or two) and then sent to our respective polls to again wait in line. All the spaces set out were more like 4 feet rather than 6 feet apart and we were crowded like sardines. Yes there were hand sanitizers and everyone was masked but the mingling was far tighter than anywhere else I've been in the last year and, of course, no one checked for symptoms of infection or vaccination because ... voting is a right ... and why would we set up a special place for the symptomatic or unvaccinated?
Why anyone in Ottawa thought it would be a good idea in the middle of a new wave of a highly contagious variant to funnel all of the population of Canada through restricted places absolutely boggles the mind. And that's before you even consider the $600 million wasted on this boondoggle.
I really do hope someone sends a message to those dumbasses. Looking forward to tonight.
