A longtime rural resident, I use my 60 plus years of life learning to opinionate here and elsewhere on the “interweb” on everything from politics to environmental issues. A believer in reasonable discourse rather than unhelpful attacks I try to give positive input to the blogesphere, so feel free to comment upon rural issues or anything else posted here. But don’t be surprised if you comments get zapped if you are not polite in your replys.

Lessons Needed

With spring finally here the last thing we need or want here in Ontario is an election that invariably will result in simply more of the same and even more wasted taxpayer dollars. As always Peter Russell puts things in perspective.

Opposition Leaders Need Lessons In 
Minority Government
by Peter H. Russell

The reason Ontarians are threatened with .an election they do not want is the difficulty opposition party leaders are having in learning some basic lessons about the realities of minority governments.

Not every policy issue requires a partisan political solution.
Canadians are fed up with the excessive partisanship that pollutes their politics these days and creates the environment of a perpetual election campaign.
Its time for Ontario’s opposition leaders to adopt an approach to politics that responds to our times and our wishes.”

And that goes for ALL our political partys federal and provincial from one coast to the other!
