Suburban Tories

Since Canadian suburbs are really just outposts of Anywhere North America, & serve as bastions of the continental "Me" generation who value their own security above that of others, it is not surprising that Harper's corporate socialist policies resound there far more than they do for urbanites, who have a much deeper sense of their symbiotic relations to their communities. It's why artists flee the banality of suburbs and settle city cores, because life is deeper & richer than it is in an environment defined by TV reality. Unfortunately for the suburbs, TV reality isn't real, & economic & environmental catastrophes have a way of wiping out self-obsessed security measures. That won't stop them from burying their heads in the sand this election and voting for corporate socialism.
