"Dear straight people: please shut up about the Pride Parade" https://www.theglobeandmail.com/opinion/article-dear-straight-people-please-shut-up-about-the-pride-parade/
I think the most telling part of this piece is that some people felt the need to tell the reporter they felt bad for her, but did nothing to stop it.
"I Went To A Conference Full of Conservatives Who Hated My Guts — And Told Me So"
"The company that sent me the pictured fingerprint lock has provided the security quote of the year: “...the lock is invincible to the people who do not have a screwdriver.”"
This is a long read, and worth the attention.

@Modern_Industrial I mostly agree. The thing is, it didn't matter who was leading the PCs. Things were going to change, even if they didn't have to. That's the part that depresses me.
But what really depresses me is that people will justify their choice, even if it hurts them (which it will). This will be evident with hydro in short order, but the gov't will be able to blame the previous one for a while.

@ink_slinger @Canageek It's mostly a deep hatred of Kathleen Wynne. The Liberals have been the gov't for 15 years so a change isn't surprising, but wow, people really don't like her. (I think she's decent.)
Hydro rates are another big thing. And the corruption issues a couple of years ago.
The province is not doing terribly, but many people have been convinced it's a disaster.
I just found out that the Libertarian candidate in a local riding got zero votes in the 2014 Ontario provincial election.
This means the person didn't even bother to vote for themself.
Is that being hardcore libertarian?
