I read a lot of blogs each day, much preferring them to the corporate media. They run the gamut from pedestrian to brilliant, with everything in between. Today I had the pleasure to read a brilliant post by the irrepressible Min Reyes titled Letter To All Canadians and I urge you to take the time to read it yourself, you won't be disappointed.
Here is a snippet
Don’t look up at politicians. Look at me, look at your neighbours, look at your parents, your fellow tweeps. Look at your fellow Canadians. The government is only a tool for governing. We, together are the government. Our politicians are nothing more than our representatives that unfortunately, due to the nature of the power structure, become the governing individuals. When did we lose sight that we, as people, form a government with rights above that of politicians’ greed, interests, and perspectives.
