I am quite an opinionated person, but I NEVER like to force opinions or beliefs on others. I don't like bringing politics into our measly little fashion blog, but I believe that the election this Monday deserves a bit of awareness.
When I was younger, there were times that I felt that my voice was not heard & my vote did not count for much. Now, I realize the impact of every single vote and if you are a Canadian in the age of majority, I'm telling you to get out on May 2nd & VOTE! IT'S WHAT COOL PEOPLE DO.
If you're concerned about who to vote for, check out this awesome tool:
VOTE COMPASS is a site that asks you your opinion on key political issues. It then shows you on a map, which political party your ideals are closest to. You can even look at how each party answers each individual question at the end. It's super-cool & they don't collect your info. DO IT.
I also thought PROJECT DEMOCRACY was a very interesting tool to see what MPs and parties are most likely to win in your particular riding. You may not agree with the parties they suggest you vote for, but it's an interesting tool nonetheless.

TL;DR - CANADIANS, GO VOTE ON MAY 2ND!
