Stop being polite

I want the Canadian government to protect the interests of the 90% of Canadians who aren’t morons. I’ve had about enough of this crap. It’s time for the majority to speak up and shut down this nonsense. I know Canadians are patient and kind and polite but enough is enough. What these so-called Canadian, flag waving “patriots” are doing is dangerous and it has enormous ramifications if not stopped.

We are ruled by a democratically elected government that is doing what needs to be done to protect its citizens. Protesting is one thing. Holding cities, businesses, people hostage is another.

Hey, you: Nobody forces you to get vaccinated. If you don’t want to get vaccinated, don’t get vaccinated, but there are consequences to that. Don’t like the speeding limit? Sure, you don’t have to abide by it but there are consequences if you don’t. Same idea. It’s quite simple, really. So what is it going to be next time? What else is going to be blackmailed, blocked, threatened or held hostage if you don’t get your way? If you don’t like the democratically elected leader of our country, then elect another one next time. That’s how it works. In the meantime, you can protest, you can voice your opinion loudly, fly your flags ever which way you like it and then you go back home and be active in politics, start your own party, collect members, votes, etc. until that time when the next election is up. Democracy has to be protected at all cost. This is what’s at stake here. Wake up and smell the coffee. You are nothing but a school yard bully, and you are sure as hell not speaking for me.
