Small Realities

Inside the mind of Lance Schonberg

Full Political Debate

Regardless of opposition parties currently backing away from bringing down the government right now, there is an election coming in Canada and it’s likely less than a year away.  Possibly much less.  One never knows and politics is a strange game.

I’m not currently a member of any political party and never have been.  That may change, it may not.  I tend to vote my conscience and listen to what’s actually said on the issues.  I lean to the left on many issues, to the right on a handful.  Probably you’d say I’m part of the mushy middle.  Wherever I am in the spectrum, I’m a big fan of electoral reform and fairness in the system.  We haven’t got that fairness right now and it’s been a while since it’s been around.

Love the Green Party or hate it, it gathered 2/3 of a million votes in the last election.  Not bad for the pathetic amount of funding they get, the negligible amount of media coverage, and the exclusion from leadership debates.  A significant voice that someone doesn’t want a lot of us to hear.

Think about it.
