Voting time

I always tend to be a bit nervous whenever voting time comes around, and why? Because I hope and pray that when I enter the voting station I will be able to vote as independently as possible and in privacy.

What does all of this mean? It means that I will be able to vote without any sighted assistance; to choose my candidate of choice and mark my ballot, without any assistance, for returning officers.

Is this possible? I truly believe that it is and over the years I have seen the various levels of government striving to make this happen. At the Federal level, at the Provincial level, and now at the Municipal level. Everyone is trying their best and this after it has been recognized that a blind person does indeed need the independence and privacy that everyone else is afforded.

I'm Donna J. Jodhan, your friendly accessibility advocate, wishing you a terrific day.

There is no room in this world for bullying and each day we fail to take action against bullying it is another day that we allow others to bully us and our kids. Our heroes and role models are the ones who have made us proud; those brave young men and women who gave their lives for us in past wars and those who continue to do so. They are not the ones who choose to be racists and those who believe that their bad behaviour in public is acceptable.

I write and record audio mysteries that are being used at such events as murder mystery evenings as well as at public awareness and team building events. I promote understanding, tolerance, and problem solving and my audio mysteries continue to be broadcasted around the world and you can listen to them anywhere! On the plane or train! In the car or right there in your home! On your i device or computer!

Please join my campaign against bullying (CAB) by supporting my efforts to keep on writing and recording!
If you truly care then you will certainly dare!"
