Why I Voted In Canada's National Election

Perhaps you miss her point? The relationship between nations is legally supposed to be sovereign equals, not sovereign/subject, but beyond your three-choice framework.

Canada has rampantly broken this, and the commitment to the natural world as well. In light of this, she has stepped outside of her own adherence to sovereign equality, and has voted in Canada's election, for the Canadian party whose leader pledges to mend these breaks.
