As you may know, I thought the last election campaign was one of the most disgusting spectacles I have ever witnessed.
With Andrew Scheer and his filthy Cons taking us to a very dark and dirty place.
But in the midst of that darkness, a young woman in Winnipeg named Maddison Yetman shone like a beacon of decency.
Even as she lay dying.
This is my last chance to make a difference.

Despite the pain she was in, Maddison managed to cast her vote.
She lived to see the ugly Cons defeated, But yesterday she lost her final battle.
An 18-year-old Winnipeg woman who made a viral video urging people to vote in October's federal election has died.
Yetman's uncle, Brent Williamson, announced his niece's death on Twitter Sunday morning.
"Our beautiful little peanut passed away yesterday. She was stronger than anyone could imagine and left a wonderful mark on this world," he wrote.
Young Canadians should be proud of her. Her message will live on to be used again in other elections.
So long after her death she will be remembered for her service to our precious but fragile democracy.
We should all be so lucky.
Well done Maddison...
