Laurier Heights Door-knocking

Last night, Christopher and I went to Laurier Heights to knock on some doors. It was, as it has been every time, a very affirming experience. One man congratulated me for getting out into the community and said it was better than waving on the street. I laughed and said, "Yes, I find the interaction to be a little more meaningful if people aren't driving by at 60 KM/hour."

I spoke with a man in the playground with his young children. He took several brochures to give to his friends and promised to direct people in his address book to my website.

People are very generous with their time and don't seem to mind the interruption at all. They seem genuinely touched that I've made the effort to visit them.
