All I Want In a Political Party

There are many things I'd like from a political party but, for now, there are two key priorities.   One is a total ban on bitumen tanker traffic through BC inshore waters.  

The other is a commitment to dismember the media cartels that are poisoning Canada.  If we've learned anything from Stephen Harper's regime, it's that far right politics and dominant, corporatized media make fast bedfellows.  We've seen that corporatized media does not hesitate to abandon its essential job as watchdog of government to instead serve as lapdog of government, shamefully betraying the public interest.

Face it folks.   The one thing that will keep Harper in power is a collaborative mass media serving as his partisan political agency.

That's it.  I'll settle for just those two things.

I agree that a pipeline to the US is much better than tanker traffic to China.

Actually Anon that would be the entire caucus of the Conservative governments in Ottawa and Edmonton, the government of China, about half of the legislature in Victoria not to mention Enbridge and Big Oil.
