I Do Not Trust My Country Anymore

     It's been a while since I've written. I really wanted a chance to see what Stephen Harper would do with his coveted majority. Today I've seen enough. The apparent deliberate voter suppression tactics must be fully, deeply investigated, and the perpetrators and those involved in the planning and giving the orders must be brought to justice. That is a minimum.

     If Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his party are innocent, Mr. Harper would realize his government has not lost the confidence of parliament, but has lost the confidence of the citizens of this country. If he and his party deserve to govern, he would, without hesitation, agree to visit the Governor-General and ask him to dissolve the 41st parliament, and allow Canadians to participate in a free and fair election monitored by the United Nations. If he has nothing to hide or fear, he should win again. Let there be an investigation of election 41, while we have an honest election 42. Why, it should be a romp for him, facing 2 parties that are running on interim leaders, right?

     Below is the text of a letter I just sent to Elizabeth May, leader of the Green Party of Canada and Member of Parliament for Saanich-Gulf Islands, BC. I also copied the Honourable Bob Rae, Interim leader of the Liberal Party of Canada and Member of Parliament for Toronto Centre, ON, and Nycole Turmel, Interim leader of the New Democratic Party of Canada and Member of Parliament for Hull-Aylmer, QC.


Thank you for taking time to respond to my deep concern. Is there a possibility of a citizen making a formal complaint to the U.N.?

The reason I ask about such an extreme measure is, for the first time in my life, I have lost faith in the institutions of my country. I can't trust an investigation by the RCMP if I look at their conduct and lack of accountability. The idea Bruce Carson, a 5 time fraud convict, was vetted by the RCMP for the top job in the PMO, and that no one to my knowledge can tell me who cleared him and why they still have: a.) their rank and/or b.) their job is the tip of the iceberg. I've heard an interview with one of the girls working at a call centre who claims to have complained to her supervisor, the RCMP and Elections Canada and we only hear now that she was ignored? I've seen it acknowledged there was a lady who complained to Elections Canada in Guelph during the campaign, and they dropped this immensely important complaint because the lady didn't want to pursue it? I am unaware whether RCMP were aware of this incident but surprised if they weren't.

I need to know someone is trustworthy enough to defend and protect democracy in Canada. I am unconvinced this can be achieved from within. This is not a game to me. This is not a sport about whose team won. Who do we turn to when we cannot trust our highest institutions? This cannot be dismissed as dirty tricks. I don't care who they are affiliated with, I want to see justice done and I no longer have confidence it will be done internally.

I, and many of my friends have this to ask: To whom do we turn for justice?

I eagerly await your suggestions, and thanks in advance for your speedy reply,

  2. Good piece, Mark. I believe you have clearly articulated what many out there are feeling and thinking right now. I look forward to the replies from the politicos.
    Best.... G.

  3. the guy who supports killing right wing canadians for organizing to fight for they're views... thinks the UN... Should control canada's elections...

    here's a Crazy thought... Could the NDP of faked the robo calls to Taint the Harper victory? Do NDP and liberal supporters have the skills to do such?

    "if harper won the federalellection with in the grounds of canadian ellection laws fair and square he should waste millions of dollars on a federal ellection allittle over a year after the last one and let the Miltary arm of the new world order Control the precideings"

    I can not trust the NDP Liberals or greens to Protect my charter right's. i do trust harper WAY more then my enemy's.

    I guess For wanting to be protected from yout definition of "democracy" by not wanting party's who have violated they're Half of the social contract you must wanna kill me.

    Canada needs it's own tea party not the owned by wall street movement.

    1. Congratulations on being chosen to lead the Bozo Parade. WTG
