The article summed it up best:
I’ll tell you what I expect: I expect the leader of our country, when accused of corruption on that scale, to stand his ground and answer a few questions about it. I expect my PM to treat the media like the voice of the people, not some pesky kids. I expect a scandal-laden Parliament to cancel summer break — what are they, school kids? — to cancel the break and get to work sorting things out. And I expect my Governor General to act in the name of citizens and protect democracy.
Call me crazy for wanting government to do its job; I am sure some have, which saddens me. But what makes me downright miserable is the reaction of the thousands of Canadians I have spoken with, read comments from, or otherwise observed in the past two weeks. Those people — my fellow citizens — have simply given up citizenship. With shrugs and slumped shoulders, Canadians have decided not to have a voice.
