I’m a Zimbabwe-born, Toronto-based, activist and progressive political blogger. I’m the founder and publisher of The Canadian Progressive, a hard-hitting, provocative, unapologetic, activism-oriented political blog.

In this video, which I filmed and edited, I offer my “immigrant take” on Canada’s ongoing 2011 Federal election campaign.

I unapologetically criticizes Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper for patronizing, stereo-typing, typecasting and micro-targeting Canada’s ethnic communities.

I also unequivocally express my vision of Canada, which aligns with Jack Layton’s progressive New Democratic Party of Canada (NDP).
