Why I Vote (and Why I Spoiled My Ballot)

Most of the people who protested C-51 liked to paint it as Harper creating a police state; I saw it turning really toxic under some future administration with a different definition of an “internal enemy.” The “Stop Harper” crowd have always looked like they were fighting a nemesis created in their own imagination and fitted with Harper’s face; I didn’t see an evil leader but an evil law, with the potential for real trouble when political opportunism and cynicism (inevitably) finds the other side of the blade.
