To be free; to have choice; to exercise action.

Alberta goes to the polls today. Canadian elections remind me of how precious freedom is and how much I have to be grateful for. Even as I walk to my local elementary school polling station, and bid good day to my fellow Albertans as they also make their way to vote, my heart swells. I get to vote in safety. My vote get’s counted.

I am so very lucky. I have the incredible privilege of Canadian citizenship. This is one of the greatest gifts that will ever be bestowed on me.

Thank you to all the volunteers who make election day possible. There’s still time!
