The current government has about 30% support among voters at the moment and that should embarrass them. It embarrasses us, but for different reasons. Perhaps one day, when lightning strikes the Peace Tower twice, a progressive thinking government will allow ranked balloting or proportional representation in this country. For now though, we have to play by the rules we’ve got.
turnoverarocktoday is making a small effort to fly its colours in enemy territory. We’ve picked finance minister Joe Oliver’s riding of Eglinton/Lawrence in Toronto as a battlefield worth contesting. The issues we address are humanitarian, a measure of the worth of a candidate’s moral compass. We are not supporting the views of any opponents of Mr. Oliver. We are asserting that Mr. Oliver is not qualified to sit in the House as a member of the Conservative Party under Stephen Harper.
Here’s the handout and mailer:

IT’S LONG PAST TIME STEVE AND HIS FRIENDS ARE
OUT OF GOVERNMENT
OUT OF OTTAWA
OUT OF CANADA
