… this text reminds us of the truth of the old mantra: “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
Canada’s New Democrats have vaulted over Parliament’s separatists and over its reserve conservative party to capture the Official Opposition bench. So our friends (the folks used to running things) are going to stop ignoring us. They will shortly stop laughing. And then they’re going to fight. New Democrats should welcome this – it is how Canada’s entitled are going to inadvertently communicate to the people of Canada that the NDP is close to victory.
