I didn’t vote this Tuesday… I am not an American citizen.
Instead, I voted last year.
I voted for a government that promised to help refugees.
I voted for a government that was promoting diversity and minority rights.
I voted for a government that promised to listen to its scientists, rather than muzzling them.
Will they deliver on all their promises before their term is up? Of course not. But the fundamental message remains: it is a government that embraced good over evil; humanity over fear; decency over hate.
Tonight, I am more grateful than ever to be a citizen of Canada.
