Here I am the morning after in Canada

trying to digest the happenings of the night before. I know 60% of eligible Canadian voters cast their vote and I know that 40% or thereabouts cast their votes for the Conservatives but it seems to me that only means 24% of eligible voters voted conservative. I ask myself if this really adds up to a real majority and I answer myself with a NO.

I am so in love with the idea of proportional representation and I know the NDP is also but if they can’t make the conservatives behave like they belong in a real representative government what can we all do about it.

Fair vote Canada drones on and on and I don’t know whether enough people are involved with them to make a difference. I have the feeling that if the whole rest of the 76% of the country was sitting on the lawn of the parliament buildings the conservatives still wouldn’t listen to them. Maybe they would send in the fuzz andthrow them all in their new prisons.
