Ahh, yes.  Remember when you were totally plugged in?  You watched the news every night; read all of your favourite on-line papers; devoured the op-eds.  Come election time, you knew the platforms, the parties, the candidates…you were the epitome of the Informed Voter.  But then…KIDS!  Peter Mansbridge was replaced by Paw Patrol;  your Saturday paper with storytime; your chances of watching tomorrow night’s debate worse than Dora having a friendship-ending blowout with Boots.  Don’t despair: Today’s Parent magazine to the rescue!    They’ve put together a vital Federal Election-101 that will catch you up and yes, have you feeling pretty plugged-in when you head to the polls!
