I'm beginning to wonder if #Canadians are a bit on the masochistic side. Canada is doing very well. Employment is better than its been in 40 years. Our debt to GDP is the best in the G7. Child poverty's been reduced by 20%. Yet given the polls, it looks like we're seriously
considering changing horses in the middle of a stream. The horse we're riding now is strong & healthy. The one we are thinking about riding has a tapeworm. It needs much more food & care than we are able to provide. There's also a good chance that it's lame. But we don't know
that for sure because the lower half of its legs are under water & not visible. How can we not be happy, grateful, for the horse we have? Is it simply a matter of, to paraphrase Voltaire, Perfection being the Enemy of Best? Or are we masochistic? Wanting to feel pain so when a
healthy, strong horse becomes available again, we'll appreciate it. I honestly don't know. What I can tell you is that as a woman & a Boomer, I'm terrified at the prospect of Canadians choosing the sick horse over the healthy one in Oct. I've lived long enough to know what will
happen if we do choose the sick horse. In short, except for very few Canadians, the vast majority of us will suffer needlessly while being unable to ride to the other side of the stream. We'll kick ourselves for needlessly causing harm to ourselves & others. #Ontario did it to
themselves last June. So many are now suffering thanks to @fordnation's destructive policies. How can #Canadians look at #Ontario & seriously consider doing the exact same thing to themselves federally? So I must ask, are #Canadians masochistic? #canpoli #cdnpoli
