I guess Canadians don’t really care about honesty. Or respect for the law. Or healthcare. Or social programming. Or the environment. Or gay/queer/trans people. Or Native Canadians. Or women. Or the internet. Or freedom. Or any of those other things that I really care about.
That’s really interesting.
For those of you who voted, I think you did a really good thing. If you didn’t see your party win, don’t feel discouraged; you participated in a system that cannot work without you. And at least it seems like a lot of people came out to vote, which is really nice to see.
Let’s hope that in four years, we on the left can get our shit figured out so I don’t have to cry myself to sleep again on election night.
EDIT: I just thought of something. Only 40% of Canadians voted for the Conservative Party. The rest voted for a left party. That is awesome. And kinda shows how flawed our current system is: 60% of Canadians voted for someone other than the leader of their country.
