Congratulations Canada for not voting for another four more years of fear based politics..
NO to four more years of the politics of fear and bullets and bombs;
NO to four more years of imprisoning folks for what someone, somewhere fears they might, one day, do;
NO to four more years of steadily eroding the rights of people;
NO to four more years of dismissing and papering over aboriginal and indigenous people’s concerns whilst ignoring and stipping away their rights and poisoning the land;
NO to four more years of of criminalising difference.
NO to four more years of the politics of hate and fear and privilege – and funneling yet more cash from those who have little enough towards those who already have more than enough.
Here’s to those who voted for a future of more hope, good hair and the possibility that we can chill in ways of our own choosing without getting a criminal record.
Oooo! Canada you gone done it.
Now the real work begins, eh?
