Rex Murphy is a Canadian gem: a true patriot who often captures and expresses the conscience of this nation … and, in my opinion, also reflects so often our collective soul …coast to coast to coast.
For those who have not had the pleasure and privilege of hearing him, Murphy is a veteran CBC broadcaster, whose weekly Point of View, Thursdays on The National, is the consistent BEST three to four minutes each week on Canadian television.
Last week, he took on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s rush to change Canada’s entire electoral system.
I wrote about the federal Liberal government’s rush to change the way Canadians elect our MPs and our governments topic May 16: http://harveyoberfeld.ca/blog/national-electoral-reform-yes-but-only-if-approved-in-a-clear-referendum/
And on Thursday, May 19 Murphy also examined the issue … much more eloquently than I.
Every Canadian should listen to Murphy’s remarks on electoral reform.

I urge you to pass Murphy’s piece on to everyone you know who cares about this country and our democracy. It’s their future …and the future of many generations of Canadians … that is at stake.
We should ALL be concerned …VERY concerned.
Please listen … pass it on … and then I hope you will also contact your MP and also the Prime Minister Justin Trudeau … and urge them: LET THE PEOPLE DECIDE on any new electoral system.
After all, this land BELONGS to the people … not the government.
