on voting day!

Lastly, we share the heartache that all Canadians continue to feel after Wednesday’s tragedy. Let’s work together to help support the families of Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent and Corporal Nathan Cirillo. For the next week, $1 from every uberX trip will be donated to Standonguardfund.com.

Happy voting,
