Go To The Polls Or Not Go To The Polls


I’m no political expert, but it seems we have a potential election possible in the near future, perhaps as early as this Fall? When I say I’m no expert, it means I have no inside information, no political contacts or other sources. Its just a feeling along with the recent juggling within both the Federal and Provincial governments. Lets start with the Provincial government! Just recently the mayor of Charlottetown (Clifford Lee) announced he is stepping down? he was appointed to a lucrative government job looking into shortages with low income housing. I suspect he is planning to run for the liberals in his Charlottetown riding?  I few other candidates have announced their intention to run for the liberals in the upcoming election. Probably the most note worthy one is Gordon Neilly, remember him? he almost won a seat in the last election for the NDP. He certainly gave the liberals and in particular Cathleen Casey a scare.  MacLauchlan moved quickly to win Neilly over with some patronage appointment.  Now that Casey is stepping down, good old flip flop Gordy will be running for the liberals.

The Federal liberals too are making strange noises that point to a federal election in the wind. Cabinet shuffle! Trudeau is appearing to play hard ball with Trump? is this to win the votes of those Trump haters in Canada? Trudeau is taking many photo opportunities over the last few weeks(not that he ever missed a photo op). In particular the Pride Parade where he was featured front and centre. I only hope the Gay Community are not taken in by this, because this is all about winning your votes. I sincerely hope we Canadians remember the mess this liberal government have created. Can anyone really believe the Finance Minister’s claim, he forgot about owning a villa in the South of France??? Why are the RCMP arresting an 70 year old lady for peacefully protesting a pipe line we neither need or more importantly can’t afford. It is time for all Canadians to take a real hard look at the sort of people asking for our support and vote. Oh! did I forget to mention Doug Ford? We must surely look at changing the FPTP system to the more balanced system of Proportional Representation. 

Those are my thoughts for this hot and dry (climate change)Monday morning.

God Bless and keep reading
