Regular readers are no doubt aware that we at DJ! do not care for Stephen Harper. The reckless vandalism he and his ignorant gang have inflicted on our democracy -- with a mere minority -- has been stunning.
The Fucking Useless Opposition® have been, well, fucking useless.
Pollsters, pundits, and now ReformaTory 'insiders' say that a Harper majority is now out of reach.
We are not comforted.
In fact, we are still scared shitless.
Oh. Look. This guy, one of the most respected constitutional scholars in Canada is scared shitless too. It's 3 minutes and 13 seconds long. Not a big time commitment.
If you know anyone who is planning not to vote or who is planning to vote blindly, please send them this link and ask them to invest 3 minutes and 13 seconds in watching it.
Maybe also send along this link to a guide to strategic voting. You could also input your friend's postal code and send the resulting link. You know, just to be helpful.
Seriously, when Professor Peter Russell is afraid, we should all be very afraid.
Prof. Russell 'hopes and prays' we can save our parliamentary democracy.
Or as someone said on Twitter this morning, 'Voting is a lot less painful than a boot to the head'.
