Important to remember others died for our right to vote

Hello young people,

No longer do l know many people under the age of 28, but l know hundreds of people 28-58 here in the Valley, Vanier grads. l’m writing to ask you all, please, to vote in the general election next month.

Canadian men and women gave their lives for our freedom to vote. I’m asking you to give up however long it takes that day, give back that tiny piece of your life, for which they gave up theirs completely. It’s beautiful to stand in silence on Remembrance Day, but really meaningful to exercise your democratic right and cast your vote.

You are probably busy … l sure hope you’re well occupied, but too busy to vote? Make arrangements well ahead of time please, and make certain to be there on election day.

That would be wonderful.

Miss Alison Rimmer

Comox
