The rights of the 61% of the popular vote that did not vote for Stephen Harper's reign are being trampled on.
The electoral system is flawed and the Conservatives are taking advantage of their "majority", which is a result of this flawed system. It's a technical majority, the actual majority voted AGAINST Harper.
A wiser political party wouldn't be ramming in omnibus bills that benefit their own misaligned beliefs & ideals, which on the surface they tell us these laws are good for Canada and us Canadians, but underneath, they undermine and reverse everything that we have fought for:
-separation of church & state
-Canadian resources belonging to Canadians
-due process under Canadian law not American (American authorities arresting Canadians on Canadian soil, really?)
-funding for scientists, and to leave them alone
-to implement the recommendations of committees, even if it goes against their party beliefs
-to not dissolve committees that they disagree with
-to actually listen to their constituents
-to allow MPs to actually disagree with their own political party
I'm sure that the 39% of people who voted for the Conservative party did not want robots for MPs:
MPs who'll just nod their heads and say "yes, please submit your opinions and ideas" and then do nothing, essentially they're being hypocrites because they'll never listen to these opinions and ideas because it goes against their party beliefs. These are CANADIANS' OPINIONS & IDEAS,
these are the most important ones.
Start quizzing MPs on the content of these omnibuses that they're ramming through. Most don't even know everything that's being passed with these omnibus bills, even though they're voting for them.
Even if Harper had 51% of the popular vote, the rest of the Canadians who didn't vote for Harper should still be heard. If it's an important matter that affects all Canadians, have a general referendum.
But with Harper just having 39% of the popular vote and doing this, this should be illegal!
Please folks, study Proportional Representation
"under a PR voting system if 30% of voters support a particular party then roughly 30% of seats will be won by that party".
