When Canadians are so far off track, even when they are literally on tracks waiting for a train blockade to clear, we need #IdleNoMore to shake people out of their stupor. Things are not well in Canada. Our electoral system isn’t just out of date and producing unrepresentative results, it’s also been screwed with by government-supporting criminals in hundreds of ridings. Omnibus bills, the sort not seen for a hundred years, or outside of wartime, are passing undemocratic legislation without debate or amendments. First Nations are dictated to further by the federal government, removing essential environmental legislation that protects access to water, among other abuses.
If Canadians don’t put pressure on governing politicians to listen before the next election campaign, then I’ll hate to see what growing blockades will provoke this nasty Conservative government into doing to peaceful protestors.
