Canadians also want change

What happened in the U.S. is that people just got totally fed up with politicians and the corruption in politics

Yes, Canadians can and should learn from the U.S. election. Question is, will we? I doubt it very much because we’re too apathetic, apologetic, complacent, and accepting, not to mention scared to death of offending anyone.

What happened in the U.S. is that people just got totally fed up with politicians, the corruption in politics, the totally biased media and the politicians feeling they are entitled to as much as they can squeeze out of the taxpayers. A lot like what’s happening up here.

Our politicians are no different and neither is most of the media. The CBC is ridiculously blatant in their bias towards whatever the government wants them to believe and pass on to us, but then again they have to be because Trudeau owns them.

People in the U.S. just reached the boiling point where they’d had enough, and even Trump was a better alternative than politicians. And the media being as blind and biased as they were in favour of government just couldn’t see what was happening, and still can’t. We are losing this country to what this government wants to turn it into and everyone is just too damned scared to say it, let alone actually do anything about it. Oh people are saying it but the media keeps telling us that we aren’t and that we love Trudeau. We need to wake up soon while we still have a country to save.
