I've always viewed life as a series of choices, We can choose to do the right thing or we can choose the expedient option. We can choose to be kind or cruel, whether to be an engaged citizen or be apathetic.
The same is true of how our governments choose to raise revenue and to allocate our resources. We can choose to tax the rich and the corporations at an appropriate level or to slash much needed social programs. We can feed and educate our children or throw them in jail.
We can choose attack jets, drones and perpetual war or we can choose a humanitarian role internationally. We can build a better Canada and world if we want, it's all a matter of choice.
