I generally think of politicians and political parties as a necessary evil. We pay them to make decisions that affect our lives but it seems these days they’re more focused on saying the right thing to the media instead of doing the right thing for the people.
Today’s politicians don’t work for you and me, they work for their parties and in the case of the Conservative Party of Canada, they’re choosing to work for people that will never vote for them. That seemed obvious when new leader Andrew Scheer, whipped votes to ensure MPs supported a Liberal motion on the UN Climate Change Paris Agreement.
Watching CPC MPs up-vote a motion on the Paris Accord, and then seeing that Andrew Scheer’s expenses for just one year are over $365K, makes me wonder how they’re any different than the Liberals.
We keep excusing away the fact that these politicians aren't standing up for us simply because the word “conservative” is in their party name. Somehow we think that means they’ll inherently stand up for taxpayers and hold the Liberals to account.
But that’s not happening and we have to let them know we aren’t happy by doing something about it.

Let’s send a message to the Conservative Party of Canada that we won’t support them until they start working for us.
