Let your Passion for Social Good meet the Ballot Box

When I was 8 years old, I had the opportunity to travel to Northern Ireland and to visit my grandparents for the very first time. The memories of my first few days are still very vivid. From being frisked by the British Army at the Belfast airport to leaving a department store that had received a telephone bomb threat, the violence that was the hallmark of the ‘troubles’ stays with me today. This is not a commentary about the political situation that has existed for decades in Northern Ireland. Rather, it is a reflection on the kind of society we enjoy in Canada. One very much shaped by charities and nonprofits. One defined by a free and open democracy. One where every vote makes a difference. (Imagine Canada)
