One might say election time is in the air both Federally and Provincially. This is when I once again struggle to make a decision on which way to vote. It is easier here on PEI. I have firmly decided on the Green Party, even if they are unlikely to form the next government. Whatever the final results I feel strongly the Greens will hold a position of power. Whether the liberals or PCs form a government it will almost certainly not be a majority. The Federal election on choices is a much more difficult decision. I do not fancy another four years of Trudeau, nor see Scheer as a better alternative. That doesn’t leave many options, Greens of course would be good but unlikely to make any major inroads into a position of power. The People’s Party is a no go for me, so that only leaves the NDP. I have absolutely no issue with their leader Jagmeet Singh, however, I do not believe Canada is ready to elect a prime minister who wears a turban! To say we are not a racist nation is to not admit the truth. There are many racists all across this land, just look at Quebec and the hijab issues. Or the recent expulsion of a man wearing religious head wear at the Tignish Legion. There are many similar incidents from coast to coast. So where does all this leave me? indeed not just me, but many like minded Canadians. What to do ? How to vote? Difficult choices! Oh well! It will soon be Christmas and hopefully that will release my mind from politics, if only for a brief moment. That folks is the coming dilemma for the New Year of 2019,….in the meantime Merry Christmas eh!
God Bless and keep reading
