To all of you who didn't vote on Monday and incessantly complain about how politicians will never do anything right for us no matter what party they are from, read these reports about the Palestinian election and feel ashamed. Canada's complacent attitude towards democracy does not do us any credit. We live in an affluent society where nothing much happens. It's making us lazy.
Meanwhile, as we are complaining, these guys get the joy of choosing between corruption and terrorist thugs.
But you know what? They are getting out to vote anyway. There is security up to the eyeballs, but people are exercising their democratic right anyway. Shame on you if a higher percentage of their voting population gets out to do their duty.
