An Irreverent Guide to Political Activism
for the Canadian Firearms Community
This pamphlet was written as a political primer for those who see problems with Canada's democracy our defective political systems. It is a "how to" manual.
1995: Canada is a a democratic disaster area. Less than 3 per cent of our voters belong to any political party.
That tiny (under 3 per cent!), self-selected, and very unrepresentative minority has absolute power to choose every name on every ballot in every election--federal and provincial--and absolute power to set every policy of every political political party.
That is too much power in too few hands. If you want to help correct that dangerous imbalance, you need to understand our system of selecting and electing politicians.
This paper is addressed to the Canadian firearms community, a group with members from every walk of life. As a group, you are above average in income, education, and sense of responsibility. You are precisely the type of people who should be selecting the candidates for election and setting the policies of parties.
