Maybe There Is Some Cause For Hope Afterall

So it seems that I wasn’t the only person who had a  bad taste at the back of her mouth yesterday, trying to reconcile the celebration of Canada with the vileness of the Harper regime (and with everything that Stephen Harper is doing, armed with his “strong, stable, conservative majority government*” to destroy everything that makes Canada worth celebrating): the twitter hashtag “#DenounceHarper” apparently trended higher at times yesterday than even “#HappyCanadaDay,” and placed eighth overall in the world. Meanwhile, tens of thousands of Canadians loudly booed Harper’s televised Canada Day address.

So no, it’s not the country that’s (necessarily) the problem; it’s just our stupid-ass political system.

I have the heart of a poet, the brain of a theoretical physicist, and the wingspan of an albatross. I am also notable for my humility.
