There is nothing intrinsically “Canadian,” let alone “conservative,” about leveraging insecurity, racism and xenophobia for votes through ethnic scapegoating. That is not a “conservative” strategy; it’s a fascist strategy with a long and bloody history, and it has no place in Canada. On October 19th, we have a chance to “take our country back.” We have the chance to declare once and for all that who and what we are as Canadians is no longer for sale. We have a chance to steer Canada off its collision course with history, to save it from derailing and crashing beyond our ability to recognize it, let alone repair it.
The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
To every Canadian knocking on doors for your local candidate you are a symbol of democracy in action. The weathers is good leaving room for other Canadians to join you. As of this writing there are 10 days to offer help in your local riding to the candidate of your choice. Volunteering is a well founded Canadian trait so use your time locally.
Tired of being told what the pollsters have to say almost daily?
Consider the fact polls are from a small selected group of under 1500 Canadians out of 35 million. All are selected from a screened list by the company or organization releasing the polling numbers. Look at the polls, if you must, realizing you are being manipulated. It is a clever scheme used to discourage Canadians from voting. During the 2011 election 10 million Canadians chose to stay at home. 14.8 voters of a possible 24.2 million found their way to a polling station to vote.
For me it is much easier because I stopped watching television in 2003 when the US began an illegal war against Iraq. I see the uncensored Internet by staying clear of Google. Every time a person says Google it my mind says thank you for believing Google’s propaganda. Two days ago, I opened up another browser, to see what you see when using Google. It was a nightmare, akin to the pollsters presenting a selected list, encouraging Canadians to blindly go into the dark.
The truth is rarely pure and never simple Oscar Wilde
In our Parliamentary democracy we have one opportunity, during a national election, to determine who will represent us in Ottawa. The majority of elected representatives from a political party form the government for another 4 years. We have no direct vote for the party leader. The party leader must win in a local riding to become Prime Minister of Canada. Stephen and the Conservatives are holding office based on a 61% voter turnout in 2011. A flaw in our system of voting gave them the job with 34% of the total votes.
Reject Stephen Harper and the Conservatives
Stephen and his Conservatives have had over 8 years to govern. The trail of corruption and deceit is longer than every government since the Confederation of Canada. The short collection, to back up Stephen and the Conservative contempt, of Parliament and Canadians.

How the Youth Vote can change Canada by Rick Mercer
Note to those using social media networking websites. Ignore the Conservative distraction about what clothing Canadians can or should wear. Some of our Canadian media are using the topic to avoid honest discussion during this election. Canada has a Charter of Rights and Freedoms along with being a signer of the United Nations Declaration of Universal Human Rights.
Are You Ready to Vote?
Harper and the Conservatives are holding office based on a 61% voter turnout in 2011. A flaw in our system of voting gave them the job with 34% of the total votes. We can change who governs Canada in Parliament, by concentrating on the political party, that would or could do the work required. Think of the election campaign as a job interview. Who would you hire?
