Ontario Leadership Race


kathleen wynne

I have only 2 comments to make on the process of a leadership contest in political Canada.

1. Leaders are not chosen by how good they will be for the Nation, the leader the party chooses is picked for the ability of that leader to win the next election. Anyone that has read my writing know very well that I dislike the party system, here is another instance where the peoples’ interest and Democracy are sacrificed for the interests of the Party. This is one of the reasons that Canadian have not and will not see a Statesman leading a political party.

2. Have you noticed that the Liberal Party election runs very different than the elections that the people are given. This weekend we saw that the election operated in a very Democratic fashion, whereas the people are denied a Democratic election. Ontarians elect a Government via first past the post method, whereas few as 35% of the votes wins a Party an election. By contrast the leader is chosen very much Democratically. The lowest vote leadership candidate is knocked out of the race each ballot until the one leader wins that has more than 50% of the  vote. Leave it to politicians to run a two faced system.

Back in 1993, I attended an anti-Nafta rally in Ottawa along with over 110,000 others. But despite the overwhelming opposition to NAFTA, the steamroller rolled on. It was there that I came to understand the one vital thing that I have been preaching ever since. There are so many issues, and so many fighting each issue, we are all spinning our wheels, and wasting our time, talents and energy, because each election, we give the politicians our power and so the deck is stacked against us. I said it that day and I say it with more fervency today. We all have one issue that we share, and we should all stop fighting for our own issues and losing anyways, and we should fight to achieve that one thing that we all share. We Canadians all have to fight to finally get a say between elections. We need to fight to make politicians accountable to us, the people. If there is no accountability, and the people have no say between elections, we have no Democracy. My Blog is written to teach the reader the essential knowledge of freedom and Democracy. Please read, and learn. I am one person, but I leave you my witness that one person is not powerless, only first you must first learn and then act. Let the democratic revolution begin. Kindest regards, Rob McQueen
