It looks like Hirschhorn is getting more focussed, good to see.

As for "real change to society for the good... from the mainstream parties", um, could I have just one example please?

I have not in my lifetime noticed any significant departure in Canada from the status quo in terms of doing good or reducing harm. Just a lot of dropping the ball on promises to that effect, or cheerleading incremental progress that is almost inevitable.

Show me one politician in recent memory who said "this may hurt some powerful interests but that's nothing compared to what it will accomplish positively" and got elected and carried it through. When we have a leader who tries it we vote for the status quo. So much low hanging fruit is rotting on the vine.
