“…and all at once summer collapsed into fall.” – Irish author, poet and playwright Oscar Wilde
A Brief One from Niagara At Large reporter and publisher Doug Draper
September 23rd, 2019 on Niagara At Large
I will see you back in Niagara soon.
We have an important federal election in Canada this October. Once again, and not for the last time, I urge all of the young people out there – a group that has been notorious in the past for showing up at the polls in small numbers – to get engaged in this election, and vote as if your entire future depends on it, because it does!
Don’t sit back and let older voters shape your future for you because, as we can see from the mess the planet is now in, they haven’t been doing a very good job.
It is time for you to take control before it is too late.

One last peak at the last sun of Summer 2019, through some dune grass on a beach in Provincetown, on Cape Cod. Wishing us all a little bit of love and peace this Fall –
