What's in my head

This is the home of your average girl in her early 30s making her way in the big city...Not really. I have thoughts. Now I have somewhere to put them.

No vote for you!

Canada's 16-year-olds will have to stick with driving as a rite of passage after a private member's bill to lower the federal voting age by two years was defeated in the House of Commons Wednesday. Only 85 members supported the bill, which was introduced by a Toronto-area MP in November. It wasn't all for nought, the bill did generate a lot of buzz across the country and served to raise the profile of the rookie MP.

I would have voted when I was 16...but I'm a little geeky when it comes to that stuff.
