A new federal political party for us nerds

I believe that there are many people in Canada who feel as I do, that the existing governmental structures are serving the needs of ordinary Canadians less and less.

My proposal is that we create a new federal political party, and invite individuals like Marc Garneau and Andrew Coyne to take up its flag. It could be called the PNG – the Party of Nerds and Geeks; another possibility for a name is GNP – the Geeks and Nerds Party. Us geeks and nerds will appreciate the word play. But much more importantly, one can hope that engineers, software types, entrepreneurs, blue-collar workers, construction tradespeople, small business owners, and many other Canadians who are fed up with the existing federal political parties that behave as if they’re┬ámore interested in pandering to voters to get elected or re-elected than in governing the country.
