When the heck will you stop bashing the corporations?
Granted, there's a time and a place for going after corporations which are overly greedy to the point where profit overrides their ethical centres concerning wages, safety, and the environment, not to mention the economy at large. However, there's been nary a second when the New Democrats, who are trying to attract new voters by cutting out language in their Constitution (because voters truly base their decisions on a document they'll never read, nevermind the fact that you hid it from them) by removing references to socialism, nationalization, and so on, don't bash the corporations of Canada.
I get that you're a bunch of social democrats who fight for social justice and living wages and social justice and against free trade and against greedy bankers and for social justice and so on - but you have to realize now that you were not elected because of that position, right? Right?....
Maybe not, but rest assured, you weren't. As I pointed out before in a slightly unrelated topic, labour had little to do with the political undercurrents in the 41st election. There were concerns over pensions and such, no doubt about that - but if bank-and-corporate-bashing was really the way to Canadian's hearts, they wouldn't have elected a Conservative majority. Heck, they wouldn't have given 39.6% of their vote to the Conservatives, plus 18.9% to the similarly corporate-friendly Liberals, which constitutes well over 50% of those who cast their vote.
Bashing the banks and corporations, promising to get rid of ATM fees (which, anyone with a brain knows is a gimmick that saves them little), and so on and so forth, is not good policy for the long-term. It gets the usual Dipper blood pumping, sure, but some 2015, you better learn to tone it down or Canadians will give you a real lesson in political realities.
