Canadian Election Fraud
In a very Canadian kind of revolution, we rose up yesterday and threw the bums out but gave them a soft, fluffy landing, nevertheless installing in office a minority government that somehow managed to get itself elected despite having the word "Conservative" in its name.BC Indymedia has already concluded the election was a sham.
Once again, Canada's antiquated first-past-the-post system wasted millions of votes, distorted results, severely punished large blocks of voters, exaggerated regional differences, created an unrepresentative Parliament, and may possibly have even given us the wrong government.This post, also on BC Indymedia suggests its not even a local phenomena:
Well, after two fixed US elections, a rigged election recently in the Ukraine, another in Iraq (according to most independent observers anyhow..), the victory of the christian right-wing in Germany recently too; I wonder how closely the canadian media are going to look into the financing of the conservative election apparatus? It would be interesting to see how much 'US' (read: CIA) funding has been plowed into their campaign?...it seems to be a very disturbing trend worldwide at the moment - if you don't like their government, bankroll the rightwing opposition and get them out.Global Conspiracy? Or Sore Loser. They vote, you decide. It's happened before.
Meanwhile, this guy should be getting hungry right about now.
I, Andrew Munoz, I am a Canadian Citizen, I am 22 years old, I stopped eating as of 12:00am January 15th in order to raise national awareness concerning sustainability and its importance in the impending election. I will not start to eat again until we as a nation have a vision of Canada that we can be proud of. I put out the call to the candidates running for Prime Minister, "I have questions like so many Canadians, which go unanswered."
