It's About Water Rights

This election will prove to have been one in which a) Harper wins & water becomes a commodity, after which money talks & everybody else lays down & dies, or b) he loses; the corporate agenda ends & a cooperative commonwealth is created in Canada, in which our lower, middle & upper classes all acknowledge that when Queen Elizabeth signed the Charter of Rights and Freedoms she made Canadian individuals collectively sovereign, above & beyond the House of Parliament, the crown is us, the water is ours, or Conservatives give it away to their monied friends: that's the choice.

One of the main things that attracts me to the Greens is that they are the only party proposing to declare water as a human right. That alone is enough to get my vote, especially since water will soon be the "new oil".
