“If you care about the environment, there's nothing more important than increasing the level of environmental literacy in all parties. And with an election around the corner, now is the time. GreenPAC's environmental champions announced today. Pick one (or more), dig as deep as you can, and help get them elected!” — Aaron Freeman, GreenPAC.ca

Truth, Lies, Political Accountability
Do the promises made at election time have any relevance? Is Canada, while technically still democratic, still a responsible government? Or a country where vested interests, expediency and corruption trump political accountability? Are government and electoral reforms long overdue?
For criticisms of the powerful parties in Canada, you don't have to look far — from the mainstream media to targeted criticisms like #stopScheer and #stopTrudeau. There are valid criticisms mixed with speculation, conspiracy theories, opinions voiced by people who have little understanding of governance, economics, etc.
In spite of all this, should you still care, vote, partipate? The answer is a resounding yes. If you think the system is broken, first, vote for the best available option. Then, get involved in a positive way — support organizations like OpenParliament.ca, Fair Vote Canada, Fair Voting BC, Democracy Watch, Council of Canadians, Canadian Civil Liberties Association, Canadian Journalists for Free Expression, Equal Voice, Citizens for Public Justice, and more.
In the age of climate and ecological breakdown — threatening our very survival — what should we do to move forward?

“Democracy is not something that you believe in, or something that you hang your hat on. It's something that you do, you participate. Without participation, democracy crumbles and fails. If you participate, you win, the future is yours.” — Abbie Hoffman
