All across Canada yesterday, upset Canadians gathered in numbers to protest Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s reversal on his promise to reform our election process. It was after all, he, as a candidate, that made it a major part of his platform. A platform that gave the Liberals a resounding victory with only 39% of the popular vote. In many “town halls” across Canada it seemed obvious that yes Canadians wanted the electoral system to change. To be more representative to each of us and the issues that we feel are important. In the end, the Prime Minister simply decided against his promise, perhaps because it was something that wouldn’t suit him and his party’s purposes. For such a hastily prepared event, a good number showed up at Nathan Phillips Square. People of all political stripes and ages came to give voice to the sentiment that we have had enough of politicians lies and it is time to take them to task for it. A boisterous march, led by a group of awesome drummers, worked it’s way east on Queen St. and north on iconic Yonge St. to end at Yonge Dundas Square. Hopefully the Prime Minister will hear the noise and live up to his promise. We are after all blessed to live in one of the greatest democracies in the world and it would be nice if that democracy truly represented us, the voters. In a world of “fake news” and “alternate facts” it is becoming increasingly important to cling to every shred of truth we can. It seems also to be true that the “honeymoon” is over with our Prime Minister, but hey, getting caught in a lie will do that.
