Yeah, it is pretty extraordinary that you can have a political system (as in Canada) where 35% or 44% of the voting public (which means maybe 25% or 34% of the whole potential voting public) can elect a MAJORITY government!!! Truly unbelievable, yet it has happened numerous times. This is not what I call a representative democracy, it's a farce. It's a game. Just like the empty excercise that's presently wrapping up south of the Canadian border.

Nevertheless, Canada remains an extraordinarily decent and non-violent country, and a very nice place to live, and yes, Canadians mostly are really quite nice people.

O Canada! We stand on guard for thee. (no sarcasm intended) I'm very glad to be in Canada.
