12. A Canadian for Bernie!

I'm not surprised the UK press is keeping Bernie shuttered in the papers. Their media also underestimated Jeremy Corbyn's win as head of the Labour Party and were positively shocked by his landslide win are so not amused that a full out attack on the unity of the labour party is underway. Likewise in Canada, we had a surprising election, where our traditionally progressive party went right of the centrist Liberal party and were punished by progressives for doing so. And then you have the Greek elections - to be continued.

There is an unstoppable groundswell movement to take back power from elites who have rigged the system around the world.

I've been watching the Democratic primaries with great interest. What you guys do south of the border is VERY important for our own progressive movement. Without a strong voice for the environment, the pressure on industry to continue Fracking, destroying our fresh water, the ocean's water, the arctic - I could go on but have to get on a boat.

And then there is the global peace and food equality thing. Probably my biggest incentive for being here on this forum.

Sending best wishes for a Sanders win your way
