The upcoming referendum

While it might not be obvious, we're in the middle of a provincial election. Now that I work for the provincial government, I don't think it's appropriate for me to comment on the parties.

However, we are also having a referendum. This is completely off the radar, but I think that it is very very important.

Here's a good article on why you should vote yes:

You can also check out the discussion in the comments for some dissenting opinions.

I would link to an article saying why you should vote no, but there aren't any, because there are no good reasons to vote no. All the positions regarding voting no are anti-democratic and self-centered.
