No white, middle class male opinions welcome at electoral reform townhall?

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

Yesterday I told you about my night at the electoral reform town hall put on by Liberal Minister for Democratic Institutions Maryam Monsef.

All participants were encouraged to fill out a feedback sheet at the end of the event. Nothing unusual about that.

But then I looked a little closer at this handout. First, there is no official Government of Canada letterhead or logo on it.

Then it asks us to choose which identity groups we most identify with:

Women, Youth, Seniors, Indigenous People, New Canadians, person with disabilities and “exceptionalities,” "person from remote or rural community," "person from humble socio-economic backgrounds" — I think they mean poor — and Francophone.

So what about middle class/middle aged white males? Or a second generation Canadian male of any ethnicity? Do our voices not matter in a Liberal Party of Canada?

I’m starting to realize why they didn’t bother putting this form on their official ministry letterhead or allow it to be associated in anyway with the Government of Canada:

I’m sure they knew there would be blow back. So instead, they print out this kind of crap in an attempt to marginalize middle aged men.

I wonder if they see us as a threat or simply a force that could ensure we get the referendum we so deeply deserve.

She’s just doing this for show and to make notes on the input that coincide with what has already been decided.
If you think the new voting system isn’t already predetermined and hidden in some hard drive somewhere, then you’re an idiot.

very manipulative! why is this woman doing this? we don’t want it!
commented 2016-09-14 16:15:19 -0400
Jack, the new voting system was very prominent in the last election, so accept defeat and move on!

Does anyone find it ironic that they want to change how we vote, but don’t want to vote on that change?

“…I really look forward to if someone does a similar analysis of Papa Doc’s constitution and charter, which only the Laurentians supported…”

William Gairdner’s book, “THE TROUBLE WITH CANADASTILL!: A citizen Speaks Out”, does a pretty darn good job…

Ship that stupid sharia cunt back to Afghanistan. If the phony libs push anything of the such through without a referendum there will definitely be violence.

Penson…. stick to sucking dick. That is your calling. In fact you should get in line now if you want a taste of junior, Mansbridge, Brison, Craig Oliver, the Saint and so many others are ahead of you. Better join the cue, the waiting list is long.

If there have been any so-called town hall meetings in my area, they are a well kept secret, likely by special invite only to registered extreme lefty Liberals. Electoral reform spearheaded by someone from Afghanistan, with a radical agenda, what could possibly go wrong.?

Proves my point. According to Liberal Socialist/Communists some people are "more equal " than others. White middle-class males do not count. Did you not know we are in the basket of " “deplorables” that people such as Hillary Clinton are against.

As “deplorables”, we are not worthy of having a say.

If you didn’t vote liberal you do not matter to Monsef. There is only one reason the liberals are digging in their heels about the referendum, they know they won’t get what they want. They know full well the bulk of Canadians would actually appreciate some say in any electoral changes if any. They are trying to bulldoze this through plain and simple. Email Monsef and Justin and CC it to Ambrose and your MP’s. Fill their inboxes.

So Monsef goes around the country all at our expense to talk to very few Canadians in a few communities & with that feedback will decide on which electoral reform to institute…..that is preposterous & where are our MPs on this matter. They know the majority want a referendum & yet the Libs are pushing on with what they want & there’s not a peep from them. Every election I vote so there will be a voice for me in this case the aconservatives so where is that voice?
What does identity have to do with the voting system, instead, whether you want a different system or retain the current system are the questions that should have been asked but this little show of pretend to consult Canadians is only a charade.

I noticed the same thing as Christopher, it upset me right away. I pencilled in “Anglophone”. It felt like Monsef was looking down her nose much of the time. Typically Liberal.

I said before he was elected we Canadians are of no importance to this muslim and yet Canadians just refuse to get it! HE HATES CANADA AND WE CANADIANS AND IS NOT GOING TO STOP UNTIL HE WIPES US AND OUR COUNTRY OFF THE MAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sean does that include Lobama?What rock do you live under?
commented 2016-09-13 20:23:40 -0400
Sean, how much have you paid of your portion? I’d like to see the receipts, please.

Once again I recommend reading “Don’t Tell the Newfoundlanders” to see how the Liberally Corrupt Party controls democracy.

I really look forward to if someone does a similar analysis of Papa Doc’s constitution and charter, which only the Laurentians supported. However, those files are locked away for another 20-30 years so I’ll be ashes.

This is what I was afraid of. So called consultation process are not for the average Joe like you and I. Same with any environmental consultation when approving new mines. It’s always the Sierra Club, natives and other organized interests.

Here we see they have no desire to ask the average Joe what they want.

Who’s going to track to see if the established Canadian news media cover this at all. It would be nice to know. Please report if you see or hear any.

Reminds me of the census one year when the long form asked about ethnic origin and offered many options, plus “other,” and “Canadian” was not allowed. So I wrote in Canadian.
Strangely, the question has never been worded that way since.
commented 2016-09-13 17:12:41 -0400
It’s because they know what we’re thinking, and it’s counter to their objectives, so our opinion must be taken out of the process so as not to skew the narrative and the subsequent new fascist election rules.
