The Provincial Political Association I was once deeply dedicated to, is no longer a part of my life. We had a really bad “break-up”, if you will. I thought I knew a lot of the ins and out of politics during the past five years that I have been heavily involved at both the Federal and the Provincial levels. I leaned how little I know about people that I thought I know, and I learned personal agendas outweigh the needs and the will of our people. I learned just how cut throat and heartless some can be. I learned that people in power will stop at nothing to keep that power and trample over anyone that dares ask questions or express displeasure. I also learned there are amazing people who are trying hard to do the right thing, and they work so diligently to effect change from within; not knowing that it’s a futile effort; when punishment ensues communicating concerns to the establishment.
I have had too many positive experiences over the years to let a few bad apples spoil the cart for me. I’m still around. I’m still paying attention. I just haven’t figured out yet if, or where, I belong. Who knows? Maybe it won’t be with anyone? Time will tell.
