haha naw, those are upvotes from reddit. Should've added context with the whole TRoss AMA today. Read some of it, pretty much all of his answers are about loving the city and the fans.

Planes vanishing, the Raps and Leafs being 3rd in their conferences, this must be the twilight zone.

i don't really use reddit, but aren't those downvotes? they are down votes on imgur, which is where that gif was taken from, but i don't know if that colour is an upvote on reddit. just curious.

the gif was created through igmur so that it could be uploaded to reddit for the AMA. Regardless of what they look like, they're meant to be upvotes. On reddit, downvotes are blue.

Thx. I assumed that since imgur is kinda a sister site to reddit that their up and downvotes would be the same.

I had a Wendy's baconator last week and after eating it I thought I was going to have a heart attack.

Damn I haven't gone to Coffee Time in a year or two thankfully. And I can't go to Burger King or KFC - rest of the day I have the sensation of throwing up.

Anyone have any thoughts on if voting should be mandatory in Canada? Why or why not

Uhmm no it should't just because voting is a right thing to do. No one should be forced to do it.

I have no problem with mandatory voting, but it would need to be under a different system which distributes seats according to voting percentages rather than first past the post.

Thanks guys, yeah I have an essay due tomorrow on this topic.

Points for:
- full sample representation
- socialy disadvataged have a say (poor people who dont vote due to voters cost)
- influence of rich will be reduced
- parties cater to all classes, being poor and voting becomes more valuable

Points against
- People vote for the heck of it
- Easy manupliation of those who are uninformed
- Loss of freedom/rights
- extend policy to cover swing voters
- will degrade into populist in order to attract voters interest

Must haves if it is mandatory voting
- better education so people, espcially youth have a basic idea of what is going on
- yeah FPTP has its disadvantages as well. Not sure how it would structure though in a voting percentage per seat

hahaha these were hilarious. Also had a thought of a potential solution as none of the above as an option. Or see if there is a way to vote online through verification.

You missed a major point "for" - respect for the process of voting. In many countries voting isn't allowed/heavily rigged. In places like Iraq, you could get killed if some people find ink on your hand (which is imprinted when you vote).
