I’d really like to take the time to write about the current election campaign in Canada. If you are thinking of voting for any less favoured but well intentioned party, I urge you to do so. There is no way we, as Canadian people, can or will let the Conservative party come to power in a majority vote, for the result of such a vote would mean the . Consequently, it is necessary to massively transfer our votes away from the Conservative campaign to obtain as many seats as possible that should respectfully belong to well deserving parties dedicated to the betterment of our society as a whole. Also, Jack Layton’s argument specifying that our country is drifting away from democracy is shockingly true if we were to examine our so-called establishement that most proudly claim to be “democratic”. For example, our electoral system is far from representative. We need , otherwise our voting system will forever stay and dissappointing. In addition, Layton of the NDP is also correct in saying that the Senate should be abolished because it is in no way democratic; the reality is that we need to stop moving away fromdemocracy but toward it.
Furthermore, I’d like to specify that it would be a to vote for a Conservative government. In the election debate this week, the majority of Stephen Harper’s statements were centered upon his famous yet deceiving catch phrase: “The only thing that’s important for Canadians is the economy” - he repeats over and over. The basis of his argument revolves around this claim, and it is dissappointing, nay catastrophic that our society lets a man like this come to power and speak so blindly in our name; yet we call ourselves a democracy devoted to improvement.
Social progress is therefore necessary, and that’s what should determine which party is legitimate to assume the role of governing entity. Don’t get me wrong, the economy is a crucial stepping stone if we wish the realisation of any social project in our nation, but the way it is managed by the Conservative government is nothing more than dissappointing. Canadians need to free themselves from this modern illusion that because they are comfortable, things are necessarily going well in their country. Verily, Harper is breeding an through his famous “couch potato” phenomenon which encourages us to behave in comparison to an ant colony.
Contrary to what the Conservative government might say, this election is necessary; thus, I urge you to make an informed decision, let’s take the time to vote for the future of this society, which should hold no place for a manipulative leader much more concerned with investing billions in jets and prisons. This vote is henceforth for our country’s future, and to think, we have the possibility to influence it in such a way that shall benefit our society as a whole; shouldn’t that be a strong enough reason to stand up for our rights and vote? We have the possibility to make our mark and the future decisions of this country; alas, shouldn’t they be for and toward the betterment of our nation? It is crucial that we seize this opportunity now available to us so that we may one day witness a government reflecting the views of its people, and this is precicely why we cannot allow Harper and his band of miscreants to come into power, for they will only lead to the imminent degradation of social values, something which should be unacceptable in this country.
