There are many reasons that those of us who value social justice are deeply disappointed in last night’s election results. I can only hope it galvanizes us to fight ever harder for a better country.
“It’s time we stopped marginalizing social justice, or patronizingly relegating it to the fringes. Achieving social progress requires more than just a perpetual return to the traditional, professionalized politics that continues to leave one in seven Canadians in poverty, tolerates people having to sleep on the streets, and allows thousands of children to wake up hungry and badly housed every single day in one of the richest societies in the world.
We have to demand better, and stop settling for less. The Left’s task is to organize to turn that hope into a reality.”
