Yo! Iggy! Want my vote?

Come right out and say: 'The electoral system in this country is deeply fucked. It enables deadlock, mindless partisanship, and endless games-playing. All to the detriment of cooperation, good governance, and sensible, fact-based policies. I pledge that the Liberal Party of Canada will propose legislation to address directly the democratic deficit by means of some form of proportional representation.'

There. Hear the scritching of millions of pencils making x's? You win.

And to Jack, Gilles, and Lizzie: feel free to jump on this bandwagon. It can do you nothing but good.

I think after what happened in Toronto G20 week-end; the taste of Steve's utopic Harpercon land should be enough of a wake up call to vote for the opposition.

Honestly, electoral reform is the last thing that should be on our minds, given what happened in TO and what could happen if we remain apathetic.

Paul Martin back in 2004 warned us Steve would have armed cities.

Please, prevent a Harpercon majority; Please don't make electoral reform a deal breaker.

Right now, we should concentrate on getting them out of office. Speaking for myself. I don't care how it's done, especially after recent events.

Let alone GW Bush; he's proving to have tendencies like that of General Augusto Pinochet.
