Lame ducks

I'm not voting for any of these candidates that are running for Prime Minister. Hell no! They're all the same song and dance all talk no action easier said than done bullshit. Cats and dogs would do a waybetter job than any of these people. Hell, I'll even vote for Garfield and Snoopy. Even Kermit and Cookie Monster would be better choices.

Your vote is a treasure in itself, never mind who is running. There will never be a perfect slate of candidates. Sorry, but choosing not to vote for this reason is childish and doesn't help anything. Go make a choice because you can.

They are not all the same. Our democracy ain't perfect and none of us are in perfection at this time either. BUT our democracy is a work in progress and we got it relatively good in Good Ole' Canada. Why do you think most of the world would like to be here?? Do vote and vote smart !

Democracy thrives on stasis

It's all geared to people who largely want more of the same.
And the haves will lose less than the have-nots will get - token gestures, both, with a little off the top for the state and "friends". Borrowed from the future for baksheesh in the present.
We've recently upgraded the NIMBYs ("not in my back yard") to CAVE people ("citizens against virtually everything"). So now there will be even less change.

Even temporary housing affordability, for example, would require median (not mean, which is an average) wages to quadruple. Or prices to drop by half. Or the loonie to devalue by 50 percent. Because policies are in stasis, but the population is still expanding and life expectancy is rising.
No one's going to push for that. Which means life will remain very expensive, because property values are priced into everything. And wages will remain very inadequate, because Canada is already an expensive place to get anything done (see preceding sentence), leaving no room to raise them.
Not materially different from the US with its trillion-dollar deficits. Which will turn into two-trillion-dollar deficits and more, if the other side wins there.
Canada is America Lite.

VOTE. it’s your way to protest. Do Not spoil your ballot. Understand that, Not Voting creates a major negative impact on any election.

IF, your current incumbent is Conservative, THEN check the results of 4 years ago AND vote for the party of the second place incumbent.

coming from a childish person like yourself. Who allowed you permission to go on the internet and write this up? I’d stick to your kiddie shows with Garfield, Odie, the gang from Sesame St etc. Besides, isn’t it past your bed time?
