The Only Logical Choice For Canadian Prime Minister


Canada is currently in the midst of a federal election. Elections are always hotly contested events, but this one has been criticized simply for having been called. The last government was a minority led by the Liberal Party of Canada (LPC).

When in a minority position, a government must rely on the support of another party to gain enough votes to pass legislation. It involves a great deal of negotiating and giving and taking. Some people believe it is actually a good system, but those folks certainly do not include the party with the most elected members, who want an outright majority.

Although the campaign is only halfway done, the lead has disappeared and a real race is underway.

In an attempt to shore up a majority, LPC leader Justin Trudeau, looking to take advantage of a hefty lead in public opinion polls, called this election just two years into his mandate. This has backfired on him, and has given the opposition parties ample ammunition to paint Trudeau as an opportunist for calling an election as the country grapples with the fourth wave of the pandemic. Although the campaign is only halfway done, the lead has disappeared and a real race is underway.

Many long-time LPC voters have indicated they will either ‘hold their nose’ and vote for the local Liberal candidate, or are so irked with the election call that they will spoil their ballot or vote for another party.

I suggest that rather than spoil your ballot, be creative. Write in the best candidate to lead the country for the next four years.

I understand fully the anger, but I suggest that rather than spoil your ballot, be creative. Write in the best candidate to lead the country for the next four years. Of course, I refer to Gurdeep Pandher, or as he calls himself GurdheepPandher of the Yukon.

Every day Mr Pandher posts on social media a video of himself dancing Bhangra, the traditional dance of Punjab. He does this in an effort to “make cross-cultural bridges, inclusivity & optimism across Canada”. Can you imagine a better platform that that? If this guy doesn’t embody great leadership and the best attitude, I don’t know who does.
