Yesterday I noticed two things:
- The BC NDP and BC Greens are willing to create a new paradigm of politics in BC. Hopefully this can mean a legislature where people don’t behave like 6-year-olds with the rude and sexist heckling we’ve seen for decades. Maybe it can be a place where the world “honourable” can be said without irony.
- It turns out that descendents of Dumont and Riel accidentally met in the first 10 minutes of law school at UBC a little while ago. Now they’ve graduated and symbolically represent…get this: a new way of international relations in Canada.
Coincidence? Hopefully not.
As we pivot to a new province/country/world of new paradigms, we need to WANT to shed past broken relationships.
We need a new world built on respect, dignity, honesty and once again, respect.
Are you up for it?
