Should be a "dissolve all government" option at the ballot box. 

And that wouldn't change much, if the choices are still the same and never change, ever. But they can make voting mandatory, now even easier.

I think a big problem in democracy is that parties are catch-alls for all issues. 

That is a problem of FPTP, not so much general of democracy. In a proportional system, a coalition can and very often does include main parties as well as smaller ones, focused on specific issues. That provides first of all, a direct feedback from the voters to the government; and secondly, an additional level of controls and checks on the government. In Canada's status quo though, absolutely, there are default governing corporations whose main focus is to get to and keep the power, rather than address (successfully, with results) issues that are important to the citizens.

It won't change anything. Won't do anything to the system. Look what a flu-like epidemics allowed it to do. Surely in this century we'll see stronger and more convincing causes to just shut up and obey?

Is Angus Reid a credible source?

Well look at it this way, in your circles if you don't strongly identify as someone who hates Trudeau you are just as strongly identified as someone who loves him.

That's the sort of fanaticism you'd expect from ISIS.

Concerning the Angus Reid poll on Justin Trudeau's non-performance, and your interpretation of it:

'Hate' is your word, not mine.

'Love' is also your word, and you  show your adoration for Trudeau with your every post.

'Contempt' is my word . . . . applied liberally to Trudeau and his band of penguins.

He may have a point in what we may be marching toward a state where one has to be in one of the bands, one way or the other. Compare only recently, mask nirvana and universal panacea or ugly antimasker, only two choices. And yes, we are doing it to ourselves. We seem to be unable to, and actively resisting thinking any other way.

Well, you certainly wasted no time underscoring my point and hate is most definitely a word I've seen your ilk apply towards Trudeau.

I've been applying that word to Liberals without let up since you were in kindergarten and even knew what it meant.

It's your ilk that keeps a devious dipshit like Trudeau in power.  Have you realized that you're also a penguin?

Actually it's your ilk that does more to keep him in power because the alternatives are so ridiculous.

No I'm a mammal, a penguin is a bird.
