It seems to be the trend in Canada for politicians to go out of their way to make their constituents stupid. Canadian politicians would rather have the people of this country ignorant of the problems that it faces today and in the future. In today's fast paced world, Canada needs politicians who are willing and able to plan and explain a course of action for Canada to follow into the future.
We need politicians who are willing to listen and learn, arrogance has no place in government. What kind of negative effect is the current attitude of our leaders having on the country? Are we moving forward as a nation, are we preparing as a nation to complete on a global scale? Are we ready to meet the challenges that emerging economies, such as China and India, are going force upon us?
I'm afraid our leaders are asleep at the wheel, our healthcare and education systems need to be overhauled. Healthcare costs are spiraling out of control, but no one is willing to stand up and admit that anything is broken. People from China, Eastern Europe and India are going to be competing on a level playing field for our children's jobs in a global economy, but yet our schools continue fall behind in Math and Science.
What will it take for our leaders to wake up and focus on Canada's future instead of their own? Canadians need to be inspired to achieve greater things, not looked down upon as a mere vote. When is someone going to step up and lead this great country into the decades to come?
