Michael Moore Statement on Canadian Election
 
A little late considering elections is over but I'm glad to know that someone cares (though most canadians don't) which party comes in to power.

Michael Moore Statement on Canadian Election


Michael Moore is currently in production on his next movie. As an avid lover of all things Canadian, he has issued the following statement regarding Canada's upcoming election on Monday:

Oh, Canada -- you're not really going to elect a Conservative majority on Monday, are you? That's a joke, right? I know you have a great sense of humor, and certainly a well-developed sense of irony, but this is no longer funny. Maybe it's a new form of Canadian irony -- reverse irony! OK, now I get it. First, you have the courage to stand against the war in Iraq -- and then you elect a prime minister who's for it. You declare gay people have equal rights -- and then you elect a man who says they don't. You give your native peoples their own autonomy and their own territory -- and then you vote for a man who wants to cut aid to these poorest of your citizens. Wow, that is intense! Only Canadians could pull off a hat trick of humor like that. My hat's off to you.

Far be it from me, as an American, to suggest what you should do. You already have too many Americans telling you what to do. Well, actually, you've got just one American who keeps telling you to roll over and fetch and sit. I hope you don't feel this appeal of mine is too intrusive but I just couldn't sit by, as your friend, and say nothing. Yes, I agree, the Liberals have some 'splainin' to do. And yes, one party in power for more than a decade gets a little... long. But you have a parliamentary system (I'll bet you didn't know that -- see, that's why you need Americans telling you things!). There are ways at the polls to have your voices heard other than throwing the baby out with the bath water.

These are no ordinary times, and as you go to the polls on Monday, you do so while a man running the nation to the south of you is hoping you can lend him a hand by picking Stephen Harper because he's a man who shares his world view. Do you want to help George Bush by turning Canada into his latest conquest? Is that how you want millions of us down here to see you from now on? The next notch in the cowboy belt? C'mon, where's your Canadian pride? I mean, if you're going to reduce Canada to a cheap download of Bush & Co., then at least don't surrender so easily. Can't you wait until he threatens to bomb Regina? Make him work for it, for Pete's sake.

But seriously, I know you're not going to elect a guy who should really be running for governor of Utah. Whew! I knew it! You almost had me there. Very funny. Don't do that again. God, I love you, you crazy cold wonderful neighbors to my north. Don't ever change.

Michael Moore

(Mr. Moore is not available for interviews because he now needs to address the situation in Azerbaijan. But he could be talked into it for a couple of tickets to a Leaf's game.)

u shoulda posted that BEFORE the vote.

Michael Moore's opinion means nothing to me. He does not live here.

dropped_E30 01-24-2006 09:47 AM

He may not live here but he is more educated about our country's politics than a good percentage of people who do live here

very true!

and i couldn't agree more with michael moore's statement! can't believe people voted for the conservatives! Harper will change this country dramatically and not in a good way.

Please, tell me how?

I'm not a conservative by any means and I really hate defending them, but I can't stand uninformed titheads even more.

Besides the Liberal scare-mongering, can you actually state one thing to back up your statement?

Compare the libs and cons platforms, they're almost identical. Actually, in terms of crime & healthcare, the cons are actually stronger. How is he going to change the country dramatically?

sirex 01-24-2006 10:42 AM

pfffft it doesn't even matter.. They are a minority government, the libs have alot of seats, the bloc has a alot of seats and in more then a decade the NDP finaly has alot of seats.

its going to be an interesting term with not many changes..

I like the simple fact that we arent in a deficit, mind you i dont follow politics that closely, but i dont like the fact that hospitals are to be privatized.

Anyways the Thing that I dont like about harper the most is his americanized Personality!

jstallin.....---->dude get a life!! ppl have a right to their opinion!

Moore knows more about the internal methods of goverments than %80 of the general population...elections are won by media distortion,either for or against..if anyone thinks goverments are going to improve people lives think again...the agenda is to control period...If only you can get a PM that didnt come from from the "boys club" where you must be a white,male,lawyer,doctor or ex ceo the common people voice would be heard rather than the loud minority or corporate back dealings.Why does Canada always has to kiss the butt of Quebec?..it makes so little sence why Canada spends so much money and time to feed those spoiled separtist..
