Thankfully our Parliament voted against a snap election. Maybe the kidiots in parliament will work together now instead of bickering amongst themselves and lead our country through the public health and economic crisis that we are currently in.

To a lot of folks this better describes a sad state of affairs: https://www.cnn.com/2020/10/24/health/us-coronavirus-saturday/index.html At this point, you’re running any given scandal up against the thought of having continuity in our Covid response and you shouldn’t underestimate the importance to someone like me in the latter. Our response in Canada definitely hasn’t been perfect, but the contrast with what the same virus is doing South of the 49th (and even a two hour drive away from Brandon) isn’t lost on a lot of folks. Absolutely there needs to be oversight when decisions are made, but it’s a fine line right now between making the necessary points that maintain a level of accountability and looking like this is just the latest instance of trying to drum up a scandal and score “points” for their “team” in a partisan game of trying to win control that the especially politically engaged can be part of. Many of us that have considered and hope to consider all major parties from election to election are watching with concern closely for signs of right-ish politicians drawing inspiration from what the far right South of the border have been peddling in. I’m hopeful that new leadership with the Conservatives knows and respects that because there’s a real chance they lose a chance at support from someone like me forever if they show too many signs of wanting to shift the same direction as what we’re seeing to the South. I know we have a lot of folks that follow politics closely, but please don’t forget that there are a lot of us that don’t have a party and don’t particularly want one ... and that many of us want zero to do with an election at this point unless there’s something so inhumane and awful that absolutely cannot wait another year or two for voter intervention.
