I didn't take it personally either. But let's remember: it's not my job to go and do all the legwork. If they want my vote, they have to earn it. It shouldn't be expected that I will just vote for them and do all the heavy lifting to read their campaign material for them. Just talking with someone, informally while at the door or out on the street would be nice.

I was raised in Dundas. Every election I recall at least one candidate or at least someone from their campaign coming to our door. I've lived in downtown Hamilton and now up on the west mountain and have yet to see someone out knocking on doors. The only time I've met someone actually campaigning was when I was walking with my wife on Herkimer and was met by Matt Jelly, who was out campaigning, back in the fall of 2010.

Get the electorate engaged! Don't focus on the "safe" neighbourhoods where you know you've already got the vote. Go get the rest of the city involved and maybe they'll surprise you and get out to vote.
