Coalition of Progressives: An Idea Whose Time Has Come

http://montrealsimon.blogspot.ca/2014/11/why-progressives-may-soon-be-forced-to.html

The usual desultory conversations have been making the media rounds regarding a Liberal/NDP coalition…yet  the typical  trivial fracas in Parliament seems to  be vetoing the idea before it hits the ground..

Trudeau  oversteps, Mulcair gets castigated for responding, the Cons snigger in the background as the rest of us seem to self-distruct, over and over again, a continual Groundhog Day of  self-abuse that gets us nowhere..instead of planning for a successful run at the Cons next time around, our political choices seem bent on maintaining the status quo..

It would be great if this happened of its own accord, but if wishes were horses….
I finally, grudgingly  see the need for a coalition group to establish itself under a separate banner, say, “United Progressives”  or some such, that both Liberal and NDP supporters could relate to,  get together and brainstorm ways to strategically run for office and to vote to defeat the Cons..it could be done, it should be done, and I would be happy to join support/volunteer for such a group here in BC…here’s hoping that, once again, the voters don’t just leave it all to the politicians..let’s start participating in our participatory democracy…
