Only 62% of Canadians eligible to vote in election 44 exercised their right to do so. Out of this number, the Liberals won 32%. Ultimately, Justin Trudeau was elected to the highest office in Canada’s government, with only 19.8% of eligible voters choosing him. (32% of 62% = 19.8%) By extrapolation, that means that over 80% of eligible voters in Canada did not choose their current government, yet the PM has no shame, and in fact is acting as if he has just laid the golden egg.
To rephrase this, 80% of eligible voters in Canada are, in effect, subsequently experiencing “taxation without representation”, made worse by the fact that the PM is still refusing to allow Parliament to sit, once again using the pandemic “opportunity” as the excuse. In the truest sense of the word, none of this is democratic.
It is troubling that over one third of Canadians eligible to vote did not exercise their agency. Additionally, the lackluster participation at the ballot box by the younger constituent is unfortunate. According to Election Canada polls, the main reason for apathy across this (18 to 24 age group) demographic is that “they are not interested in politics”.
It is safe to state the obvious; “politics have become a train wreck in Canada”. With special interest group “shadow campaigns”, possible foreign interference, divisionism, biased media, and apathy, the political scene is likely going to continue to deteriorate if Canadians do not speak up. The time to do so is now.

Explaining the Turnout Decline in Canadian Federal Elections: A New Survey of Non-voters – Elections Canada
Election 44 seems to be more about the personal political needs of one individual Canadian than the needs of the (approximately) thirty-eight million other people who call Canada home. It is about spending hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars frivolously, on an unwanted and unnecessary election, at a time of financial and medical crises. The current circulating opinion is that full unadulterated majority, i.e., control, is what is sought, as this is what is needed to unfold and implement a specific agenda upon the nation.
Canadians have not been privy to the game plan, but a handful of recent Bills, ‘lying in wait’ in the House of Commons, spell out some of what is to come if the current administration is not held at bay.
It appears to many Canadians that the current Liberal government is not working hard for the struggling taxpayer, but instead is playing political charades, aggressively vote-pandering to the uninformed and special interest groups, (possibly with the intentional help of select media) in order to stay in office for its own self-fulfilling purpose. In its truest sense of the term, this is not democracy at work. It is the duty of Canadians to educate themselves of the facts and address this on September 20, 2021.
The “WE” scandal, like a heap of odoriferous cow dung, continues to linger as an acrid smell in Canada. Whatever feat of deception the Trudeau government employs, the stink wafts up and circles back, engulfing them in the smog once again.
There is a reason the Prime Minister flatly refuses to testify, when ordered by the majority to do so, and it is the same reason he demands that the appropriate Ministers also do not comply with the House order. The Prime Minister’s Office does not want to accept guilt and is not operating in good faith. They can claim innocence until proven guilty, thus as long as the office does not engage in the inquiry process of discovery, they can magically claim to have clean hands. It is obvious the Prime Minister does not want to incriminate himself and his family to Canadians – all those pesky hard-working taxpayers who pay his salary.
Like a child hiding behind the couch devouring contraband cookies before supper, thinking no one will see him as long as he keeps his eyes tightly shut, he continues the infantile charade. The blatant obfuscation of the PM borders on the cartoonish, and through their disgust and incredulousness at his behavior, Canadians are also laughing at his buffoonery, strategic though his jiggery-pokery may be.
Ah, but maybe a shiny new budget full of pixie dust, sugar, and sunny ways will finally provide a much-needed distraction for the citizenry to look away from this gross egregiousness.
