It’s time to change to way we’re governed in Canada

The present system of living, cheating and outright corruption in our governments can’t continue

I wholeheartedly agree with Mr. Thomsen’s letter.

Our present political party system makes it impossible to make democratic governments. As I take my daily dose of the Global BC news, it becomes very clear that our politicians are not transparent or trustworthy. When I look at the  situation in Syria and Egypt and their dictatorial leaders killing their own civilian population, what good is the UN security council? The closing of the government in the good old U.S.A. speaks volumes of the party politics. Here in Canada, our elected and non-elected politicians are walking the slim line of being outright criminals or not getting caught yet. It has become real obvious to people like myself and Mr. Thomsen that the only time the population of Canada is important to our political leaders is the promise-making time of our elections.

I just hope that there is some wannabe politicians who are sick and tired of the way we are manipulated by of our lemmings we have elected to lead us into our future.

The present system of living, cheating and outright corruption in our governments can’t continue simply because the population is getting too smart to let the corrupt politicians keep going the path they have chosen. After all, there are a hell of a lot of ordinary folks around then there are politicians. Something just has to change the way we are governed.
