No there shouldn't be a referendum. Our electoral system needs to be updated and the average Canadian either doesn't care enough to do the research or is too easily swayed by political propaganda to make effective decisions.
So you're saying that the government should operate as a fiat of the prime minster and the cabinet. National issue, national debate. Otherwise it's no different then a dictator. It didn't fly with the Quebeckers tried to leave Canada and tried pushing it through the MLA either. But it would be the same with attempting to amend the Charter.
We need some form of proportional representation with run off ballots so we don't get another shit head like Harper elected because the Liberal / NDP / Green voters (who are the majority of Canadians) aren't stuck with a party and a prime minister that only acquired ~40% of the vote.
Remember that part about the right not to vote is also guaranteed? But we'll come back to some other parts of what you just said.
. I also don't see how the Liberal policy decisions are more out of touch than the Conservatives who basically bet everything on big oil, silenced scientists, implemented policies that made the rich richer and tried to bend, break and bully their way through everything that stood in there way, including the Canadian Judicial system.
You mean those Conservative policies that the Liberals had equally enforced when they were in power? But those scientists only complained when the Conservatives were in power? Or that "everything on oil" which wasn't the case(FYI real estate is by far the biggest GDP item in Canada). And it was the Liberals who started Canada down that path in the 1970's with the NEP. The same NEP that was so messed up that Trudeau Sr., had to implement wage and price controls. Or that almost all PM's have gained national party standing by the same methods.
including the Canadian Judicial system.
Reminder that it was the Liberals that revoked the right to property ownership in Canada, when patriation was in the works. And some of the greatest and most egregious charter violations happened under the Liberals watch, with the GC pushing for them.
I'm only saying this about the Federal Liberals though. In contrast, I think the Ontario Liberals should serve jail time for the gross incompetence they've displayed.
That I can 100% agree with. But let me know when you get Toronto to stop voting for them, and between 23-30% of the province is directly employed by them.
