Because this damn election is going to impact all of us

Well, I just saw Paul Martin's first stump speech, and I thought that I was watching a movie from the '30s. Cries of "for shame" and name calling and "urinal stream length" boasting seemed to be the message (that and the catch from one of his handlers that Harper could not say - that he loves Canada). It's the evil side of Education, but our money comes from somewhere, and if we don't know enough to put an X down on the day of the election (Jan 23rd, 2006 - and yes thanks, Steve for messing up the holidays for many families and Jack for not standing close enough to your own compromise initiative). I'll try to keep politics off this as much as I can - I'm a new junkie, so it may be hard - but if you see things here, be sure to vent your points. We need to discuss it. In the end, it will impact what money the provinces are given and what money are then divvied all schools. On an EdTech type note - it's going to be interesting to see how the media is dealt with, especially us pesky bloggers. And, Canadians, please remember, you are not voting for the idiotic talking heads that are on TV every night, you are voting for your local candidate, who (unless you get door knocked or have an "important" member) you'll never know in any other way but a lawn sign, is who you are voting for. They share many of the same views as the leader, but you need to be sure that you can trust the individual, not the party. Alone, and in small groups, they are good and noble people, parties on the other hand are completely another manner. Technorati Tags: , , , ,
