No. You are not penalized because you did not vote in Canada (except that your candidate is less likely to get in, so you may lose your rights by the fact that a worse candidate gets in and takes them away).
I think what was meant was, even if there is election fraud, it can only be to a certain extent, or can always have the chance to be revealed at any point.
If, however, you get discouraged and stop voting for your underdog candidate, the numbers truly will be in favour of the ruling party, no elaborate fraud required.
Always vote! Always! But know that it is probably not enough, for we are in a broken system. It is a start though, and don't overlook it.

Canada clearly did better than most countries, mostly because we have good trading partners. BC is exporting tons of raw material to China which is doing great things for Canadian economy. With new pipelines being built, to which I am opposed, it's not looking so bad at all. Canada will be exporting Natural Gas to Asia and tons of Crude oil straight to the US.
But of course that won't help us for long... it's a temporary fix to a worsening problem to which there is no solution.

Canada is losing manufacturing jobs and my old home Ontario is taking abeating, one of our saving graces is our low population which during tough times we are better at recovering and coping imo.
I hope the moron is right but Ive stopped believing morons.
