Personal musings at the end of a long election campaign.
What do I want to conserve?
Our environment, because without an hospitable planet, there’s no viable economy!
Social diversity as much as biological, guaranteeing humanity’s long-term survival.
Sciences and education, because we will need all the available heads to solve issues born from the past, to face the challenges ahead. (No, there are no piranhas in the St. Lawrence River, but other exotic creepers such as Asian carp threaten these places.)
Public support for the artists, magazines and cultural organizations, for without creativity, without imagination, where are we going?
I need a cultural diffuser as CBC-RadioCanada because no eventual “official organ of the Party” will replace it A mari usque ad mare. (As a Franco-Ontarian, the CBC is our own French language buoy! )
I am a staunch conservative for human dignity, honesty, and the liberty for women to choose their own path in life.
I want to get back to what is, for me, the original meaning of the word “religion“, reli-connected + ion-all, “to connect all”: building bridges between people, multiplying loaves of bread instead of fences.
