Manifesto for Change

Where elections are determinations and validations of the peoples' will; where our politicians must face us not because they have to, but because they want to; and where our nation never rests, it is democracy that calls.

At present in Canada it is not our pension collecting politicians that are perpetuating change, nor will ever such movement be generated from the antiquated dilapidated backrooms of Ottawa. The invigorating impulse, the sensational stimulus that will conduct itself throughout Canada will be energized by action itself.

The northerners of the 49th are dissatisfied with our government, not just with the ruling party, the Prime Minister and his cabinet, but with the political system in its entirety. It is not the leaves, nor the branches, it is the whole, the decrepit maple tree.

The political system in our country needs to change, not just in its actors, not just in its parties, but in its very essence, its very form. No longer can the attitude of entitlement be transitioned from party to party as if it was the MP's office and party loyalty his desk. No longer can elected officials prefer political expediency over political virtue; that instead of their choosing the easier path, there is no choice but the right one. No longer can our constitution be bastardized by ignorance; and instead of leading to its ruin, our Prime Minister leads to its emboldening.

This change will not come from within this political system, it will come from without. It will come from the Canadians who genuinely and earnestly want to make their country better, not out of political ambition, but out of ambition itself. Where partisanship has been grossly sensationalized as of late and merit and inspiration have been cast aside; it is these Canadians who will bring change upon the backs of these forgotten virtues and our glorious maple will forever prosper towards the shining light.
