Are there any differences in politics?
I’m wondering if other people feel as I do about federal/provincial politics?
I’m not alone saying I have become cynical of the actions of our politicians. I think of Ghiz with a degree of horror, and when I look at our present premier I shudder. The scandals, payoffs, backhanders, roundabouts, PNP, Geo Sweep, no transparency, broken promises — and the list goes on and on.
The overwhelming question: what can we do about it, how can we stop it? Just recently we had a federal Conservative leadership race, and have a new leader. Andrew Scheer smiles and makes promises to change the way government is doing business.
Provincially, a young politician is seeking the leadership of the PC party, Brad Trivers. I know Brad well and I’m sure he means what he says, however it’s what the back room boys want that counts.
It doesn’t matter who wins, we are going to be subjected to the same broken promises. Nothing changes unless the voters change it. We cannot continue voting in the same red or blue parties because there is no way to distinguish between them. All that changes when a party changes power is the patronage goes to new people.
The Liberal party president and the Conservative party president are work colleagues in the same law firm. How is that for being different? Can anyone see a distinct difference?
