It’s over.

A blood-soaked country stands elated to crown it’s new figurehead.


OPEN LETTER TO PRIME MINISTER JUSTIN TRUDEAU


November 4, 2015


Mr. Prime Minister,

Ensure that you do all of the things you’d said you’d do. Show me I was wrong.

Create jobs. Legalize pot. End the war. Protect the Indigenous.

When you legalize pot; ensure you’re not creating a monopoly. Ensure that you’re creating good, well paying jobs in a market akin to wineries.

When you end the war; be clear of your intentions and your timeline.

When you ensure Indigenous peoples in Canada are treated fairly; ensure that the underlying social issues plaguing communities are addressed. You are not allowed to just slap a band-aid on this one.

Part of me worries that you’re just part of the old-guard; the revolving door in Ottawa.

A bigger part of me believes I should have voted for you.

Not because I believe in your platform more than I believed in Tom’s; but because he’s part of the old-guard too.

You’re different. Maybe.

Prove to us that you are.

Fix our country.

We need it.

Sincerely,

J.G. Oblivious
