Oh Orange Canada!

November 30th, 2005 by Scythian Princess

Canada needs an Orange Revolution

Well, a federal election is underway up here in Canada. Could Ukraine please send some election observers?

The very day the minority Librano, er, Liberal government was defeated in a vote of non-confidence, news stories had already broken here and here about some electoral machinations that would have made Yanukhovych proud.

It seems the Party ran roughshod over its own riding association executive in the Ontario riding of Etobicoke-Lakeshore and, breaking its own rules and breaching democratic due process, parachuted in their own fair haired boy .

Sound familiar to Orange Revolutionaries?

The story has been followed in the blogosphere, including here , here , and here .

The whole bizarre situation is all the more ironic given that apparently members of the riding association executive and both shut-out nominees were election observers to Ukraine last year. If they’re watching the Canadian elections, Kuchma, Putin and Yanukhovych et al must be laughing their heads off.

Advice to Conservative leader Stephen Harper : Don’t eat with Liberals, and if you start gaining in the polls make sure to hire a food taster.

    A very apt comparison of the machinations of your Liberal Party with those of Ukraine’s Yanukhovych. Definitely be careful of what you eat and with whom!

    BTW, love your modified Cossack painting.

    Borys Wrysznewski (sp) already represents leftist Toronto Ukrainians for the Libranos. Sort of running against his natural instincts, though – being a buisnessman (his “Future Bakery” wrapped in blue-and-gold colours), being historically anti-Kuchma, and — the kicker — pro-Orange Revolution (!). (Wake up, please! You’re a cog in Canada’s version of “For A United Ukraine”!) Yet for all these faults, I think that he was the main brake on deporting geriatrics to Ukraine this last time ’round. Small return on an “all-in” play, if you ask me.

    All the movements for change seem to come from the Western ends of both Canada and Ukraine, hitting up against the same obstacles, including calling your opponents “intolerant dangerous bumpkins”.

    I’m with the Conservatives and all Ukrainian-Canadians. Thank you all for bringing this to our attention. No Canadian “liberal” will be dining with me …. ever.
