Why you should vote:

If you think that one person can't make a difference,
Try explaining that to:

or the people who supported these causes. 

If everybody who had supported them had said "One person can't do anything, I'm not going to bother", we would never have noticed the work of these "great people".

Each famous person and almost every defining moment in history is supported by Thousands of people.  People who could have just as easily said:

"One person can't do anything, I'm not going to bother".

These are the people who,  by taking (or not taking) action can make (or break) a defining moment of history.

I suggest that you are such a person.

Why to fight for someone else's rights

When they came for the Semites¹ I said nothing for I did not know them.
When they came for the Gypsys, I said nothing, for they weren't my friends.
When they came for the Communists, I was solaced by my safety.
When they came for the Gays, I clung to my wife.
When they came for the Labour Organizers, I hid in my business.
When they came for the Rights organizers, I was glad I had been silent.
When they came for my wife, I cowered in the corner.
When they came for me, there was nobody left to fight for my rights.
-- My paraphrase of an earlier poem.

The Vancouver Green Party website (well, that's where it used to be.)

The Greer Report on the rapid transit and the fudging of SkyTrain costs by the government

" And you know my experiences of making this film made me very aware of the sadness and the dehumanization of people at times of war. And the repercussions of war. And whatever you believe in, if it's God or Allah, may he watch over you and let's pray for a peaceful and swift resolution."
