The Canadian election choices seem to be…
1) growth at the expense of the rich (Liberals)
2) growth at the expense of social harmony (Conservatives)
3) growth pretending to be socially responsible (NDP)
4) growth pretending to be sustainable (Greens)
All of these platforms will harm the future of our children and accelerate the collapse of our planet’s ecosystem.
Not one party is promising less now so that we step back from the cliff.
Not one party is promising population reduction policies which are needed to maintain a decent lifestyle for future generations and survival for many other species.
All of the parties see the painful symptoms of limits to growth and think that the policies of the other parties are to blame.
How can you construct a useful platform when you do not have a clue what is going on?
