I did vote.
Since the OP didn't he has forfeited his right to complain about the government put into place by others.
More than 31,000 Ontarians declined their ballot in the June 12 election, the highest number to do so since 1975 and a dramatic increase over levels in the last election.
Formally declining to vote is different from spoiling a ballot (or not showing up at all): the voter must publicly declare his or her refusal to vote at the polling station itself. Provincially, the right is available in Ontario, Manitoba and Alberta. Voters who formally decline their ballots do so for a variety of reasons, such as a conviction that none of the candidates on the ballot represents their beliefs, coupled with a desire to ensure elected officials know this.
