Welcome to the jungle. It gets worse here everyday. We've got everything you want. We've got fun and games.

On the one year anniversary of Canada's 42nd general election and the resulting 'change' it was going to bring, the time has come to try and measure up the promises and hopes against the realities and lack of change that becomes more evident every day. Not that fundamental change for the better is occuring at any pace of note anywhere. Just that this was the message offered and readily consumed by the electorate. Seems that concept of 'deliverology' needs some work.

Study after study shows the majority of Canadians are open to changing everything about the way society officially treats marijuana. The more recent the study, the more apparent that message is. The generational change has only accelerated it. Trudeau and the Liberals were keen to capitalize on that and there is no doubt it was to their benefit. So where is the benefit for Canadians? Dude, where's my legalization?

Among the many CPC changes we were told would be reversed was citizenship. The 'Strengthening Canadian Citizenship Act' C-24 was at the top of the list. The new 'Changes to Canadian Citizenship Act' C-6 is now in the Senate, it's last legislative hurdle before Royal Assent. But confusion reigns in the public domain. Is it justified?

In the US, policy and vision is an afterthought in the most ridiculous election campaign of all time (to date). SouthPark's slogan of Douche vs Turd Sandwich is too close to reality. Seemingly by design.
