Election Night

(I had written this to both Twitter and Facebook earlier tonight, but I think it’s work reposting here)

I think election night is one of those nights that everyone on social media gets a free pass to rant. Emotions are running high on both sides. Just remember we all have to live with each other tomorrow and we can’t change the results.

The voters have spoken for better or for worse. This does not mean if you are not happy you give up. It means if you think the government of the day is not doing their job then you make them know that. Do it in a way that does not involve name-calling. Stick to facts.

There have been good and bad candidates in all parties which means there are good and bad candidates that have been elected. Remember almost all of them ran to serve.

Double check things you read. Get to know your MPP, ask them to be involved in their communities, the good ones will want to know what is going on. Make sure they and the community at large know about the challenges that many people in this province face. We have never been in a better era to let these sort of messages be heard. (for better or for worse). Be well.

Busting the Myth of ‘Welfare Makes People Lazy’

In The Atlantic, Derek Thompson writes

Cash assistance isn’t just a moral imperative that raises living standards. It’s also a critical investment in the health and future careers of low-income kids.

A excellent article with some great citations and further reading.

The Podcast Ep. 01 Posting Fire Code Violations

My first episode of putting some of my casual thoughts on topics of the day down in podcast format. These will vary in length.  Tonight’s, for example, is under 4 min.

This time. London City Council and posting fire code violations.
