Canada is now governed by a Conservative majority leadership. This means Stephen Harper, the Prime Minister, will have four years to irreparably damage our country until it is unrecognizable, and maybe then people will actually give a shit.

I don't understand how his party could be re-elected when they have undermined the Constitution time and time again. This party is pro-military. They want to spend money we don't have on fighter jets, and increase spending on crime even though crime rates have dropped. The party has slashed arts funding, as well as funding for women's groups, gay rights groups, and single-parent families.

I worry about the state of this country. How bad does it have to be for people to care? Will we wait until laws are changed to criminalize abortion? To have harsh sentences for smoking marijuana? To have the death penalty instated? I honestly don't think these are far stretches.

And we're going to get fixed election dates, which means we'll be stuck with a bullshit party instead of being able to call a goddamn election when we need one.

Maybe I'll move when I'm done with school.
