Touchless borders and a digital ID in Canada in our near future sounds like something out of a dystopian sci-fi thriller – unfortunately, it’s all too real and no one seems to be paying any attention.
As the “I support the thing” crowd chases whatever new narrative the media dangles in front of them, the most pressing issues of our time aren’t being discussed. In an age where much of the global populace has access to information at the touch of a screen, why haven’t people grasped the concept that governments around the world are seeking to make major changes in their day-to-day lives?
At the end of the day, I feel like an old man trapped in a young man’s body. I’m yelling at the walls here! Canadians can’t seem to hold their public officials accountable these days. How many ethics violations is that now Prime Minister Trudeau? Canadians need to be adamant about holding our politicians accountable and that starts by being aware of their actions and monitoring their decision-making with that knowledge in mind. I know many are just trying to live their lives and don’t want to be “bothered with politics.” The issue is, if you don’t bother with politics – politics starts to bother you. It already has and I’ll prove it by using one word – Covid.
