At my strata condo’s upcoming Annual General meeting, more than two dozen resolutions will be put before the owners, updating our bylaws, changing some fee structures and setting new rules to govern our future.
Under laws imposed on BC Strata Councils by the government to ensure a clear majority if owners favour bylaw changes that affect them even in a minor way, TWO-THIRDS APPROVAL is required for any resolution before the change would take place.
And apparently similar CLEAR SUBSTANTIAL APPROVAL REQUIREMENTS govern stratas right across the country, including Quebec, on even small changes like a 25-cent rise in the cost of using a strata’s washing machine to do a load of laundry.
But the federal NDP would allow Canada to be broken up by a simple 50-per-cent-plus one successful referendum vote!
And by the way, that wouldn’t be a 50-per-cent-plus-one vote by all Canadians … even though ALL across the centre country would be SUBSTANTIALLY affected and economically impacted on world financial markets …. but by a vote of those in just one province …to destroy Canada as we know it.
The federal NDP has tabled a Bill in the House of Commons that would make a 50 per-cent-plus-one vote sufficient to break up the country.
Did you vote for that?
I sure did not.
Current law, under Canada’s Clarity Act, requires a “clear” vote on such a substantial issue … and that’s the way it should be.
Most people in BC., and I dare say many other provinces, think that if, say, Quebec goes, the rest of us won’t be affected …and could even gain financially.
It certainly would relieve taxpayers across the country of the billions we all send to Quebec each year through our taxes in equalization grants, subsidies, grants, contracts … and just plain political graft, that awards them more power in Ottawa than their population or comparative economic strength would warrant.
But it’s not that simple: such a massive breach would likely affect Canada’s credit rating, investment stability, interest rates (got a mortgage?), the dollar and many other economic factors.
Which makes it even more incredible that the Official Opposition amateurs would so flippantly propose legislation that could have such a devastating ECONOMIC impact on all Canadians …not to mention the love many have in their hearts for this great united country itself … coast to coast.
This is just the latest pandering to Quebec nationalists and even Quebec separatists to come out of the geniuses now running the federal NDP.
And what’s even worse?
Watching BC’s lick-spittle NDP MPs continue to see no evil, hear no evil and certainly speak no evil as the people of their province … and now their country … get shafted over and over again by their “new” anti-democratic party that now clearly represents Quebec, its far left radicals, the separatists … and not the nation.
I realize many NDP supporters who read this blog will NOT like this new reality.
Tell your party; let your MP know how you feel about this betrayal of sense and responsibility; and DEMAND they start speaking out and standing up … for you and the country.
Instead of just lining their own pockets, enjoying the perks of their padded lives in Ottawa, and watching their mounting pension plan benefits mount … while turning their backs on their country.
