Mostly by choice, I've made sure in the past to keep my blog politics-free in past, to the exceptions of a random post in december 2004 about the last american election (sorry, it's in french) and a post about the Quebec National Holiday.
The reason for this is that I never took the time to document, elaborate and write down my political views. For some reason, I prefer a live debate. I do want to say this, and y'all welcome to debate on it : I beleive in working inside the system. I've applied to the Canadian Armed Forces, with the ultimate goal being to enter the Canadian Foreign Service. (Remember, this is Canada : we allow weed for therapeutic purposes, gay marriage is a reality, and we only engage our troops in peace-building/keeping missions !)
My struggle to become a successful public servant is truely about promoting responsible behaviour, peace, sustainable development and cultural diversity. I know, Daffy Duck (GWB), Elmer Fudd (PM Martin) and their comtemporaries all carry these flags at the moment of the elections. Which is precisely why I don't want to get involved in executive politics - a Tweety bird character like me would probably not be beleivable...
Nevertheless, I've been amazed at the amount of people who take the time to voice their opinions publicly, and I've taken the time to read their blogs and comment on them. I think the blogs I choose to link to on this page reflect to a certain degree my opinions, and I feel that I should not disclaim that. My heart goes out to all of those who take the time to document, write and publish defendable points of views. I guess I feel respect for those who take the time to be good defenders for their own points of views.
At the same time, I've never been happier to be on the northern side of the border.
ON ON !
