Sure you can.
What an philosopher from a different country, with different beliefs and a different time has to do with a party that is more to the centre than the right, I have no clue what it has to do with the election but I think it's great to see it there.
The NCC is a well-funded right-wing Canadian lobby group that has been heavily involved in advertising and political campaigns and legal challenges in support of its goals of "more freedom with less government." The impetus that led Colin M Brown to found the organization in 1967 was his stalwart opposition, as an insurance agent and doctor's son, to public health insurance or "socialized medicine," as it was framed at the time by its opponents.
The results from Tuesday's election will not be made public until after the polls close in British Columbia at 7 p.m. local time, 10 p.m. ET.
Elections Canada reminds voters to bring ID
Tuesday marks the first general election in which voters must present identification at the polling stations. In terms of physical ID, voters have two choices:
* Government-issued photo ID with an address (but not a passport).
* Two pieces of ID without a photo, as long as one has your address. These can be bills, a health card or a library card.
# Health Card
# Social Insurance Number Card
# Birth Certificate
# Driver’s Licence
# Canadian Passport
Many voters across country unaware of new voting rules requiring ID
People across the country were having some difficulties today casting their ballots in the federal election.
An Elections Canada official says many voters were unaware of a new rule that states they must present identification showing their name and address.
Dana Doiron says people have been turning up with passports or other ID that do not contain an address, which they now need to vote.

A Canadian here, and yes, I voted, but being the eternal pessimist, I don't expect much to change, no matter what party gets in. The candidates all make big promises, and then when it comes time to deliver, they are nowhere to be found.
But what can you do? You vote, and you takes your chances.
