I made the leap. What leap, you ask? Well to some it’s not actually an important leap or a big one, but to me it is.
I am now a member of the Ontario NDP.
It’s strange to think I joined a political party, especially without really talking to anyone (although I did meet my local Federal candidate this summer at a festival downtown). I’m not sure what the real difference is between ONDP and NDP membership if anything; all the info on the membership looked the same, but I was lead to the ONDP site by a local man I emailed so that’s where I joined.
I had been toying with the idea since the last election in 2004. This time I felt like I should be doing even more. So, I am. I’m still uncertain if I’ll go all-out and volunteer. I’m thinking maybe, but since I’m gone all of next week, not ready to commit to that yet.
So let this post just serve as a dual disclaimer that 1) my political bias is now evident (as if it wasn’t before?) and 2) my blog is personal and does not represent the official policies and stance of the NDP.
However, since this blog is supposed to be more about library and information science issues than anything else, I’ll try to keep politics talk down to a minimum.
