All of those supporters of big government who are gloating over their
alleged victory following Dalton McGuinty's decision to ignore the
referendum will face up to everything except the truth. The truth is that
they lost the tournament but were awarded the trophy anyway. Not even a
peewee hockey team would accept a win that way, hockey players having more
principle and integrity than the "No" supporters.
De-amalgamation is no longer the issue. What is at stake here is democracy
itself. People must learn to stand up to lying, unprincipled politicians.
If they don't the time will inevitably come when it won't be just a
referendum, but instead an election, which the ruling government will ignore
when it doesn't like the ballot count.
When that happens the good, principled people who fought to uphold democracy
won't care any more. At that point, we're all in trouble.
