EMBRACE THE TRUE INSTRUMENTS OF CHANGE
I'm expressing my disenchantment with the upcoming BC election with something positive.
I am frustrated by the lack of choice amongst the parties; the incumbents are corrupt while the challengers sell pipe dreams. None of them recognize the great perils on the horizon that are true threats.
I am disillusioned by the Swamp People who lack the critical thinking skills to look beyond which candidate will promise them a gravy train natural resource job.
Lastly, our current electoral system and party discipline-driven government are general acts of futility. The population is not accurately represented and the local issues being campaigned upon will soon be forgotten once government is formed.
I will vote on May 9th but hold no hope for change. Rather, Factotum reminds you to embrace the true instruments of change; local community and its artists, businesses and workers.
