The Right Honourable David Johnston Governor General of Canada: Stop Harper NOW
Jun 10, 2013 — I noticed a disturbing thing a few hours ago. After a steady climb in support for the first 18 hours, signatures suddenly stalled at 47, and stayed there for 6-8 hours. I wouldn't have though much about it, except I was busily promoting this petition everywhere I could at the time. Which means either:
a) suddenly, not one single person was interested in defending responsible government, or
b) something else was happening.
I'm not saying there were malevolent forces at work. After all, it could just be a flukey Internet thing. Or, you know, aliens.
But if you really want to make sure this doesn't become just another failed Internet petition that no one remembers, then you need to spread the word. Not just the link, share some of the actual text. That way it won't fade out of existence.
