Q: When it comes to the Oct. 19 federal election, what is the most important issue to you personally?

 

A: “Vote.

“We came here from Germany in 1954, from a country that was war-torn and split up.

“My first letter from me to my mother began, ‘Dear mother, we have landed in paradise.’

“I voted as soon as I became a citizen. I have voted in every election since.

“If you do not vote, you cannot complain. You cannot bitch after.”
