Congratulations to Canada for throwing out the Tories and electing a majority Liberal government. About time, I might add. But is it just me who is uneasy with a seemingly growing trend of nepotism at the highest levels of Western democracies?

not just uneasy ! Here in Brittany it is nearly as bad as the south of France, with folks up in arms over the eco tax, but mum on immigrants. Half of france wants to toss everyone not here for 3 generations out, and 1/3 really are ready to vot FN ! This is not the France I signed up for !! :-( Even the rest of the EU is nearly as bad, from what German friends tell us. It's mostly them showing up any way at the anti-nuclear demos.
What can we do (esp. expats) ?
EnerCoop, La Cimade, La NEF, Credit Cooperatif and BioCoop are all in the tiny minority here, and even fellow activists seem disheartened and couseling 'moderatin' now.
Sorry for the rant.

If my reply to your post was too strong, my apologies.

As both clients and societaires of Enercoop, a benevole for La Cimade, members of both the NEF and Credi Coop and member/shoppers at the BioCoop, we search for ways to make a difference here, in our little corner of Bretagne, seemingly to no effect.
Suggestions?
Shira
