Sixty-one years ago my first vote was cast. I hitchhiked 120 miles one election knowing the person i was going to vote for was going to lose.

My view, my opinion , my belief is if you do not vote, you have abandoned your right to comment on government action.

Yesterday being newly in my current Riding my ability to vote in Poll 171 in Burlington was obtained . 

The ballot was returned with a line drawn through the O to the right of all party candidates. 

You may or may disagree with me I've maintained my right to comment and it is this.

A party "
one that is pragmatic, practical, progressive, and optimistic about the current and future state of this country." will hopefully develop in National politics. Otherwise John's view of the future may well be what we face since none capable of uniting Canadians exists today

The only poll that matters

The only poll that matters

     This election campaign has laid bare the worst characteristics of political parties. We are treading in new territory, never seen in past elections. All political parties save one have been caught in sleazy activities usually hidden from public view and the picture is disgusting.

    None of the parties are concerned over the overall good of Canada and her people. Their objective is to acquire increased political power by any means available, fair or foul.

    We  the people are relegated to the position of fans in the stands watching opposing political teams compete. No matter who we root for, the outcome is always the same. The winning party rules in accordance with its ideas and ideology, ignoring even the minority of electors it does represent.

That is not democracy.

     We have spent the past six months wading through knee-deep political bickering, brawling and sleaze. Attention to policy has been sparse and poorly articulated.

     The electorate is fractured ideologically and regionally. There are many ridings too close to call, and some upsets are inevitable. I expect a 70% high turnout which is good as more Canadians are paying attention even if their common ground is frustration.

     This is a referendum on Trudeau. He is, by design, the Liberal Party as well as PM. Scheer and Singh are too new for us to have properly assessed and both have made neophyte campaign errors. That makes choices more difficult as we face a leap into the unknown and untested. 

     Tomorrow, electors will determine which party should have the opportunity to govern for the next four years. If there is no clear winner, political parties will brawl again over which alternative will give them the most influence. We will get another lesson in how detached and dysfunctional our parliament is.

     Minority governments do not have a long shelf-life � 18 to 24 months is usual. This may turn out to be an extended election period with a rerun in 2021. It is unlikely that major issues will be tackled in the interim and we will see more inconsequential show and tell.

     A repeat of the 2019 campaign will result in riots in our streets.
