Students of UNBC! Today's the day. Unless you've spent the last month buried under a large, sad heap of textbooks on the 4th floor of the library, you're likely well-aware that a federal election is happening RIGHT NOW. There's free direct shuttle running to and from UNBC/the John McInnis polling station from now until 1pm. A bus is scheduled to leave from the bus loop every hour on the hour, with the possibility of this service being extended later into the afternoon depending on how many students use it.
If Caribou-Prince George isn't your riding, don't fret - public transit is free PG-wide today and today only.
Lack of transportation is no reason to skip out on casting a ballot in this election. Grab your ID and a sensible jacket, and make your way to a polling station. On foot, in a bus, by car, via dog-sled or zamboni or snowmobile- however you democratically choose to transport yourself. Vote vote vote!
Unsure of whether you're registered to vote or in which riding you live? Elections Canada is the place to go looking for answers. Unsure of your life choices? Give your mom a call. I'm sure she'd appreciate it.
And lastly, here's some election coverage by John Oliver of Last Week Tonight. Skip to 10:55 for footage of Stephen Harper and his band covering Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond, as middle-aged men tend to do.
