[Recording Date: Friday, May 28]
With about a week left to go in the Ontario election, Premier BubbleWrap is doing his utmost to avoid camera, microphones, questions... and inconvenient citizen-journalist-lawyers.
All media except Global's Sean O'Shea appear to have checked out. There seems to be a concerted effort to suppress the vote by delivering Doug Ford to as an 'inevitable'.
But A.I. polling from Advanced Symbolics' "Polly" states that the Ontario PCs a one seat below majority territory, with the province not at all impressed with the effort to remove the Premier and ONPC candidates from circulation.
A week is a lifetime in politics and what with the Ontario election on June 2nd and the deadline to purchase a membership to the CPC in order to prevent Pierre, Leslyn, or Roman from winning on June 3rd, next week is GO TIME for reasonable, fair-minded, and inclusive Canadians to get off the couch and nip this freakshow in the bud.
Democracy is not a spectator sport.
Will you get involved?
Not everyone can do everything. But everyone can do something. Because we believe that “Democracy Is Something You Do”, this week we have two suggestions for you:
1 - If you want to let a certain nation know you're not on its side, feel free to e-mail a package of sunflower seeds to:
ATTN: Ambassador Alexander Darchiev
Embassy of (you know where)
285 Charlotte St, Ottawa, ON K1N 8L5
2 - Help Make the Conservative Party Progressive (or even actually conservative) Again. Apply for a CPC membership and vote "Not Pierre (or worse)" in the CPC Leadership race.
