It's high time that Canadians started to care about their democracy. Because the stupid, self-righteous, ignorant outbursts of "Ah! They're all crooks!" is totally unproductive. They are NOT all crooks, and, if they were, wouldn't that be cause to do something more than bitch and grumble in the empty moments in conversations about television shows, tires and lottery numbers?
There have been consequences as a result of Liberal austerity policy; The recession of 2008 and subsequent deficits (for which the harpercons have cooked-up an entirely new austerity package).
Look at the massive incarceration rates in the USA.
Look at the massive number of personal bankruptcies due to poor or non-existent health insurance.
Look at how the engaged, activist and insane fundamentalist Christian population has decided to teach schoolchildren that hand-holding is evil.
All this waste and insanity will be Canada's fate if we don't rise up against harpercon assaults on democracy.
