Cornwall Ontario – Another Canada Day in Cornwall. More social media griping, rain, bad fireworks, crappy bands, Cornwall sucks, blah blah. I get it.
It’s time though, that if the public want a better Canada Day festivity to take charge. There’s no reason for a sitting MP to be running Canada Day in any community unless it’s by default, which may be the case here in Cornwall.
It’s easy to pick on our corrupt and incompetent MP. Far too easy. He doesn’t help himself with the grubby exclusive politics he plays, but again, is it the bully or the enablers that are the issue.
If Cornwall really wants to throw a party a proper incorporated team need to be created that is INCLUSIVE to all and not the way things are run. Want to know why barely any corporate sponsorship ever hits Cornwall? Look at how we run things?
ZERO – NO MORE public dollars donated to entities that don’t show their books publicly on demand. It’s our park. It’s our day. It’s our money. It’s our volunteer time. Therefore all should be available to all.
Frankly anyone that can’t accept that shouldn’t be part of any team or committee.
There should be no politics or politicians on the stage for Canada Day except for a quick hello if they played a key role.
I know this is not going to happen in Cornwall. Some partisan hacks will grumble about this piece; even the partisan hacks with no real estate in the current mess. I’m not sure about you, but I’m one of the many that essentially have given up on the same clique run mediocre events which usually amount to an ever shrinking excuse for clique to swill some alcohol and show how badly they dress….
We can do better, but only if we’re inclusive and make this everyone’s event.
If we’re going to fight to save our park we should use it.
