The federal elections are coming up and I still don’t know who I’m going to vote for. I have become this indecisive voter—a strange position for someone who believes in the democratic system, politics in general, and who chose to become a Canadian citizen to be able to vote.
Today is the National Day of the People’s Republic of China ( 国庆节). So in honour of the Chinese members of the family (namely Feng and… half of Mark?), here are five things you probably didn’t know about Chinese culture!

Living in a National Capital: The Perks and Drawbacks of Ottawa [Part 2 – Quality of Living and Playing]
So, what are Ottawa’s living conditions and entertainment options? Is the city as boring as the rest of the country seems to think?
