I Entered the Mayoral Race, But I Will Not Vote Today

I am one of the candidates who entered the Toronto Mayoral race and I am sadly declaring that I will not vote today, not even for my own candidacy. I believe this election is undemocratic and my vote would do nothing but to legitimize it. I believe that all these calls for people (especially youngsters) to come out and vote is just a push to give credibility to a system that has major flaws.

Candidate Blog: Enacting Proportional Representation

Enacting PR this way would represent the strongest voters action against the political establishment, in Canada and abroad. It would set a precedent and send a message to the elected officials everywhere: listen to your voters or else the voters will override you!

The 'First Past the Post' Elections System Doesn't Work for Canada

At first this plan may sound like a gimmick. It seems too simple. But that is what makes it more likely to work if a vast majority of voters understand it and support it. The big parties will certainly try to discredit it so they can preserve their grip on power, but the Social Media power can overcome that.

Don't Believe America's Lies About Syria

The U.S. Government is threatening to attack Syria based on the most ridiculous premises since the start of the Iraq war. Remember the aluminum tubes and the biological weapons truck cited by Colin Powell? This time, the Secretary of State John Kerry cites "traces of the nerve gas 'sarin'".

Will Canada Join a War Against North Korea?

The US will go to war again with North Korea, by choice, and funded by the American people. When the Iraq war started, Jean Chretien kept Canada out if it. Now that Stephen Harper is our prime minister and his Conservative party enjoys a majority in the Parliament, will Canada join?

We're Lucky Harper Wasn't in Charge When the Iraq War Began

The 10 year anniversary of "the war of our generation" has brought back from the shadows the actors of the momentous events of 2003. Even our current Prime Minister, has admitted publicly that he was wrong when he supported the idea of our military joining the USA into war. I just hope that he will not make yet another colossal mistake while in power.

Telecom: Everybody Knows the Deal Is Rotten

Our wireless phone service contracts and rates put Canada 10 years behind Europe and Asia, even our neighbours to the South beat us by a large margin. Given that the prices for service are so high, perhaps we could rest assured that the quality would be on par. Here too Canada pales in comparison to other countries.
