Municipal Eletions Monday October 15, 2007

So today is the the City of Calgary’s municipal elections.

Being an Urban Studies major, I’m obliged to make a comment about this year’s elections – but in all honest I just don’t have the time. That being said if you’ve got the chance get out and vote for these three reasons.

1. The results of the municipal elections will on average affect your everyday life far more than the other two elections.
2. Because of low voter turnout you vote will probably have greater sway.
3. Although crippled by the provincial government’s level authority, these are the muppets that have the final say in the way our city is built. (Or in our case spiraling out of control)

That being said I still think City politics is just as ridiculous as your old High School Student Politics – except the people running are far more immature.
