Today is election day in Canada, and here at the Edge, we’re making a special effort to go to the polls. While most people can vote just around the corner, our polling station is in North Bay, a one hour drive! Interestingly, although we are about 20 km east of our office in South River, our poll is way up north in Nipissing/Temiskaming region, while South River is in the Parry Sound/Muskoka riding. Take a look at the riding map.
In technical terms when our visitors stop in our office in South River, they are in southern Ontario, while when they arrive at the nature retreat at the edge of Algonquin Park, they cross a boundary line into Northern Ontario. See the map of our dilemma here:Algonquin Park Electoral boundaries map
May all of Canada be inspired to elect a government that looks after the needs of people’s health, environmental responsibility and economic well being… time will tell.
On the natural front:
I spotted a male deer this morning with some velvety antlers that look like they have grown quite a bit. It made me realize that the summer is here and its time to make the most of it. Will do.
