The Department of Culture blog is currently running this strange advert for their EBC (Everyone But Conservatives) Party:
The EBC PARTY Everyone But Conservatives
Department of Culture and NOW Magazine invite you to come celebrate the success of grassroots organizing. Come toast the new government that 63% of Canadians actually voted for. This coalition government proves that Canadian democracy works and that the voice of the majority of Canadians really matters in Canada.
They seem happy with the whole coalition thing, and that's fine. But c'mon now. The success of grassroots organizing? If anyone can make a coherent argument as to why the rise of a coalition government was a grassroots victory and not a backroom political deal, I will give that person a unicorn. An honest-to-god unicorn.
