Since Canadians are massively under-informed about the status of the legitimacy of their federal government, it seems unlikely to me that millions of them would take to the streets prior to December 10th to demand an earlier hearing in the federal court. So until then, we’ll wait for some justice to get a hearing.
I’m really, really disappointed that it’s possible for a political party to so obviously benefit from election fraud carried out in 234 ridings in our country, and Elections Canada doesn’t press a single criminal or summary charge in over 580 days since the crime. That just leaves the corrupt party to govern us until they are later punished for their act that led to an illegitimate reign — it’s insane! The system so obviously favours and rewards corruption, through comically delayed justice, it’s embarrassing for our once proudly democratic country. It’s also embarrassing that most people don’t even talk about it, as it just fades into the background of life here.
What are other people waiting for? Do they need a proclamation from the Harper Government stating, “We’re fascist, authoritarian, and we benefitted from election fraud after being removed from power for Contempt of Parliament”? They may as well bloody do that, because I think people would change the channel in sufficient numbers to catch the end of Big Brother or the X-Factor, and think to themselves, “I hope someone does something about that, because it sounds bad.”
In a small way, it’s a relief that insufficient people are paying attention to what’s going on, because if the Harperites ever figured I and a small group of bloggers and journalists were effectively turning people on to the bleak reality of our situation, and people started to protest in growing numbers, I wouldn’t feel quite as confident in being so bold in my writing. I get why most journalists are too timid about presenting this crime, and the infrequency with which they write about it. It’s not just their job that is at stake if people don’t respond sufficiently to back them and the truth up with deeds of support.
