Yesterday 53% of eligible voters voted in the City of Calgary.
In 2004, only 19.8% voted. In 2007 a whopping 32.9% voted.
53% people! That is more than half. That is unheard of in... well, Canada...
Yes, the person I voted for mayor won, and no, my aldermanic candidate did not. But I made my voice heard.
So... to the 53% of you that voted... hold your elected officials accountable. To the other 47%, shame on you. This was the most interesting and fun election in years - you should've been a part of it. It was a blast. I look forward to doing it again in three years.
