“Democracy must be something more than two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner.” ~ James Bovard
The posts are piling up here, and while many expected to see one about my conversation with MLA John Horgan, it was sidelined when an appt. I’ve waited months for was rescheduled without notice to this week. I hope to have that for you before the end of Friday.
If you haven’t heard already, independent MLA’s Bob Simpson and Vicki Huntington are hosting a Twitter Town Hall today at noon until 1 pm, to talk about democratic reform. https://www.facebook.com/#!/events/500447429967880/
“Use the hashtag #bcdemreform so we can find your comments! @bobsimpsonmla and @vickihuntington ”
Bob recently penned a great post on his site, about democratic reform and how maybe the legislature shouldn’t sit until some changes are made that actually allow MLA’s to represent their constituents properly…. changes like parties allowing free votes.
Check it out http://www.bobsimpsonmla.ca/the-bc-legislature-shouldnt-be-recalled-until-its-reformed/ , and drop by the Twitter Town Hall and submit your ideas on democratic reform. See you there!
