Canada votes 2019, and I’ll make a bold prediction.

Well kids, it’s time to vote… that means about 60% of you will stay home binging Netflix and wonder what “some” people are talking about the next day. Get off your lazy privileged ass and get out and vote, that’s all of you out there from 19 to 99 (or older if you can make it). It sickens me to see adults of all ages to lazy to vote. I have rarely heard of a good excuse. Go out and ruin your ballot if you want to, but go out and express your rights.

Ok, calm down Chip! Here’s my prediction. I see a probable Conservative minority government with the Green party holding the balance of power. I also predict that the Green party will achieve historic representation in the house. I wouldn’t have dreamed of voting Green, not even in my worst nightmares… but, it so happens that I am seriously leaning that way. Why? Let me just say that I usually vote based on who will probably be finance minister and how the Leader of the party looks at budgeting and financing. That said my vote is not owned by any one party. I see it as my right to vote for who I think will do the best, or the least damage. I’ll be clear I did not vote for Trudeau, his incompetence was clear from the beginning.

So, why a Conservative minority with a slight chance of a small majority? It’s simple. Trudeau is useless, the only reason he got the job is because of his dad and he’s pretty. That’s right, kids voted for him because he’s pretty. My daughters couldn’t believe that I wouldn’t vote for him. Now, their are readying to vote for the first time and guess what, they’re not voting for him now that they’ve seen the light. Or, they’re just lying to me. Both are a strong possibility.

Ok, back to why I think the Cons will win. My theory is as follows… Conservative voters rarely change their ways. Liberal voters may go back and forth between parties. I think that a lot of people who would’ve voted NDP and or Liberal will transfer that vote to the Green party. Why? Because they don’t like what the Cons are bringing to the table, they don’t think Pierre’s son is doing anything other than traveling, surfing, jogging and photo bombing. The NDP? Who? Singh has a long way to go to get anywhere? I have no idea who is? I think the greens will be the cry in the wilderness, they’ll be the vote that says, enough is enough.

Now, I did throw out the idea that they might even form opposition, if there is enough of a rebellion in the country… but Canada is no Quebec. See the election when the NDP took over that Province… That’s a rebel move. If Canadians stand somewhat together, like we did behind the Raptors. We might and I say might be able to send a message to all the parties of Canada.

Voting Green has never been my first choice hell, it was even a choice. Sure I like one or two things in their mission statement, but as a ruling party they would destroy our country. That said, it’s always easier to promise everything when you have no power. So, I will probably vote Green, not because I like them, but because a strong message needs to be sent to all the parties. Enough is enough. It’s time to scare the crap out of them.

Dear Mr. Prime Minister Trudeau (regarding student loans)

Mr. Trudeau, do you need help with revamping Student loan rules and regulations? Here’s a little advice.

 

Hey there Mr. Trudeau, now let’s go get things done.

You’ve got a majority… yes, that means you won.

You want to change the world, come on now and let’s go

Let’s help the kids at home, you can now don’t you know.

It’s not hard to make a change, with majority

Just pretend our kids are yours, they’re priority….

 

Now we could make some changes, to those student loans

Get rid of all those losses, students wouldn’t moan… (I mean they’d still moan… just a little less)

Fancy, not losing money, every single year

Students paying back their debts, I can hear them cheer.

I know just what you’re thinking, all this can’t be done.

Let me spell it out for you, do it one by one…..

 

(Now this is just the basics, tweet me if you want specifics)

 

If you didn’t know, you give all kinds of credit,

Charity, RRSP’s, child care, you get it.  (NO, Ok so….)

RRSPs are deducted from your income,

You pay a little less tax that year, see how it’s done?

The government could give those, to those who repay.

Debt goes down, a little bit and they make headway…

 

All those kids are part of, a thing called family,

Some folks might like to help, reduce the agony.

So give them a credit, like line 349,

Charity begins at home, this should be just fine.

Make it all simple, to deduct it from our pay,

Help these kids get out of debt, don’t lead them astray.

 

There are things that you could do, to help kids do it right

Help the kids of Canada, don’t add to their plight.

With your majority, and all those brains at work,

Don’t dismiss this lyric as just some genius quirk…

Show us you care enough about the future Gen

Put your heart and soul at work, mostly just your pen….
