Election 2008

So on this past Sunday, September 8 morning, Prime Minister Harper asked Governor General Michaëlle Jean to dissolve parliament on the fact that he believed it was dysfunctional in its current state. This means Canada is going to the polls on October 14.
In honour of this moment, on Sunday afternoon I ventured down to the parliament buildings and produced this ink sketch of the peace tower. It began to rain, and I took that as a sign the drawing was done.
Now I'm not going to turn this blog into a forum for political rambles, it will stay art based. But I did want to say I believe everyone should get informed, and follow this election closely, as you should for each election.

Get out and Vote! Remember, the only wasted vote is the one not taken, so don't be passive, act. Vote.
