Sometimes Canadian politics make me want to barf. Especially lately. So, when my husband forwarded me this message he sent in to a local TV station, it made me laugh out loud. And when something makes me laugh out loud, I have to share it with my blog buddies! Here you go - and I agree 100%~!
"I’m glad the government prorogued parliament until January. The voice of
the people voted the Conservative Party into power in the last election at
the cost of millions of taxpayer dollars. If the Pro-Coalition argue that
the majority voted against Harper then let’s finally change to a US style
2-party government and see where the chips fall. If you want to change how
government operates, do it before the election, not after.
The Coalition is simply a last ditch effort of three old Politicians
trying use any means necessary to salvage an unsuccessful attempt to lead
the country. I hope the time over the next month and a half is spent
focusing on what is best for the economy and the people of Canada, not the
self-esteem of three white-haired men acting like spoiled children. I hope
the Queen comes over and slaps them all for wasting our time and money at a
time in world history when we have neither to spare right now!"
Amen, hunkster hubby! It's funny. On the news last night, a pro-coalition supporter made the comment that 62% of Canadians voted against a Conservative Government. Okay. If that's true then you could also say that 75% voted against a Liberal Government, or that 83% voted against a Bloc Québécois government, or that 87% voted against an NDP government. And most importantly.... 0% voted for a coalition government! So, I agree with my husband. Spend your time and OUR money doing what is best for Canada. NOT trying to get your selfish selves into power. Just once I'd love a government that WORKS for US.
Excuse me while I step off my soap box.
