Due to their failure to listen to the outcries of the Canadian people regarding the controversial bill of C-51, Justin Trudeau and his Liberal Party lost a tremendous amount of would-be voters by siding with Stephen Harper and his Conservatives to let this bill pass onto the senate’s laps. The excuse given as to why they did this was so it wouldn’t take a pivotal central stage debate rike in the upcoming elections for 2015.
Well, guess what? It will be part of that stage whether or not the bill was passed into law or not. This is, hands down, the most controversial and unwelcome bill ever introduced into Canada and the people of this nation are outraged that they’ve been ignored once again by something they strongly believed was of most importance.
At the moment many Canadians feel betrayed by the Liberals. Many are now split between going Green or NDP. There are also just as many who are so confused who to go with that they remain on the sidelines to watch how the drama will continue to unfold as we draw closer to voting day.
There is the general conclusion that among most Canadians they do not want Stephen Harper and his Conservatives to win a 3rd time as it is universally agreed it will kill Canada as a nation along with everyone in it. Right now as it stands, though, thanks to the bad choice the Liberals made, there is a very real possibility this can happen. There are many who don’t trust Thomas Mulcair and his NDPs enough to run this country on a federal level. There are also just as many who feel Elizabeth May and the Greens are not quite the material needed for the job either.
The most loyal voters that still cling to the Liberal Party despite their flaws will not waver, but this is not enough to ensure Justin Trudeau has a real fighting chance to take the PM’s chair.
There is a way he and his party can seek redemption among the Canadian voters.
What made me first sway in the direction of Justin Trudeau was his support to get Elizabeth May and her Green Party into the debates. I just naturally assumed it meant all the debates but now I’ve learned it will be for only one. This is also the same one Stephen Harper refuses to take part in. He will take part in the other debates, but only because Elizabeth May and her Greens are shut out of them.
As it stands, over 80% of the Canadians who are paying attention to this year’s election want Elizabeth May to participate in all the debates as this is what is supposed to represent a democratic Canada. The fact that there’s still a blockade against her and her party, most of it fueled by Harper’s childishness, is appalling.
This is where Justin Trudeau has a chance to swoop in like a knight in shining armor once again. If he sides with Elizabeth May again and gets her into all the debates this will win back most of the potential voters he had lost. He may even gain more. The same can be said for the rest of the Liberal Party if they stand up to the tyrannical madness brought on by the Harper Government and make it clear that the Green Party has just as much right to be noticed.
It doesn’t mean they have to form a coalition government or party, but it will show that even opposing politicians are still grown up enough to value true class when it comes to the competition of winning the people’s votes.
If the Liberals do this and Justin Trudeau exploits the cowardice of Stephen Harper in this regard he will definitely gain some much needed momentum in his favor. This is what he needs and this is what Canada needs.
