I don’t have any intentions of leaving, but it was very sad for me watching the clique in action; this time essentially putting together a watered down facet of a concept I’ve been saying is desperately needed in this city.
To see people I’ve never met listen to gossip and choose to not only hear what I had on the table, but also to not bother to even try and get a release to us on the event didn’t hurt my feelings. It resulted in mostly the usual suspects showing up at the event instead of something that the community really could’ve embraced. It would’ve been nice to see a few hundred out of 46,000 residents show up instead of a few dozen.
It’s called “Racing to the Bottom”.
When people truly work together amazing things can happen. As I walked the room and chatted with some good people it was interesting to see how the clique works. Either you got the fake smiles and slither away, or the frozen blank looks and hiding.
Speaking with a friend after on the phone she said she thought the best thing was just smile and chat with the bad people because it drove them crazy. I can’t fake it that well. I’d rather give the bad people a very wide berth and work on good things with good people.
Shakespeare’s paradigm always has conflict start with storms. Lightning, thunder; it was a lovely night to walk home.
Honestly I hope this venture works; but the odds of that happening will be better if people in this city learn to work together.
The cycles need to be broken and sadly many of those in them don’t even realize they are. The good people really do need to question the bad people and stand up to some of them.
So from coast to coast which community has the nicest people in Canada? I’m curious what you; the amazing viewers of CFN think. The only place I’ve ruled out would be a return to Quebec, and the Arctic because I’m liking the cold less and less as I get older. I’m going to visit PEI this summer to get away and check out the vibe there.
If I were to move I’d want a place with nice people; some culture, and hope.
Because without hope a community is doomed.
