“No matter who you vote for… the Government always gets in.”
Many Canadians are disaffected by the political process. They realise the governments are all the same. They realise true change rarely happens.
Maybe they even realise that it’s not “Left vs Right” or “Progressive vs Conservative” or any of those handy labels we affix to one another.
It’s the Government vs you.
If you have come to this realisation, go out in the next election and vote “None of the above is acceptable.”
I take a big black felt marker and a pen-style tube of white-out. My vote is counted as “spoiled”. But I would much rather register my protest with all the candidates than hold my nose and vote with “the lesser of evils” — which is still evil. I would rather register my protest than join the masses who believe their voice won’t be heard anyway, so why bother voting at all?
I’ll be voting “none of the above is acceptable” in British Columbia’s next provincial election. What will you do?
