Out of CAQ, out of Trudeau, out of democracy

I have had enough of these demonstrations or street blockades, raising anti-people slogans and calling for elected rulers to slip.

Far away from Quebec, I didn’t really feel the last waves of the election campaign. I am waiting for the results without really hoping for the best.

One thing is for sure, I will accept the verdict of the people, and I will not call for sending home elected officials who do not agree with me, like radical extremists who kick those who think differently from them.

The anti-CAQ convoy confirms the fears of my French and European friends who fear that democracy around the world will be greatly weakened.

The rise of the far-right in Italy and Sweden, the Hungarian regime, the beliefs of Vladimir Putin and his ilk, the ungovernability of democracy all worry them.

In the current climate, perceived powerlessness is dangerous!

Europe exploded

The French National Assembly could be dissolved and new legislative elections held to allow President Macron to carry out his reforms.

According to my intellectual companions, the race is dangerous.

According to them, Le Pen and Mélenchon are closer to Putin than to Biden and endanger the survival of NATO and the European Community. Already inside the latter, Poland and Bulgaria do not have a wide lead and come out of English.

A divided Europe, a rapprochement of some states with Russia could be expected later and herald the end of globalization as we know it.

For many, this would be good news, but the commitment to a multipolar world with the resumption of the Cold War has not ensured as much peace and social justice for humanity as the anti-globalists would like.

I sensed a certain discouragement among friends, certainly amplified by the epidemic, which lingered for a long time.

However, like us, they are tasked with reviving democracy and are keen not to give up, because the rule of law is at the heart of the problem!

Make votes credible

Without knowing the results of the Quebec election, it can be expected that the composition of the National Assembly will not reflect the weight of the trends being revealed.

Unheard voices inside the Parliament premises turn into cries outside and swell into pro-anarchist convoys.

Instead of wanting to protect their comfortable skin circle, CAQ representatives would have done useful work by contributing to the reform of the voting system.

Their approach contributed to the degradation of democracy and the rise of corruption. If every vote counts, it’s time to show it in our Parliament.
