John Robson: Vote for the Fringe

Faced with this dismal slate, I say in the short run, if there's a fringe party running in your riding, please vote for it. Signal willingness to participate coupled with contempt for your main options.


It seems to me that we need to broaden our horizons. There must be something wrong with the questions we habitually ask in politics if we keep getting answers as offensively silly as Re-Elect Dalton McGuinty or Vote for John Tory. We take a certain type of public discussion for granted even though we hate the results and, what's more, we permit and even encourage it by the way we react to public affairs.

Thank you Mr. Robson. I hope the Family Coaltion Party can count on your support.
