2013-06-21-blog_canada_day_v02.gif In Canada we've got a problem. The symptoms are easy to spot. For example, low voter turnout, a less than vital Fourth Estate and public apathy. What could we change to restore the kind of healthy democracy that would re-engage voters, stop the growth in public cynicism and give Canadians a system -- and individual politicians --they could believe in? Here's a short prescription for what ails our democracy.

My Critics Favour "Truthiness" Over Fact

I don't know Mr. McCullough, but in reviewing his blogs he seems to have embraced the weary cynic style of punditry. The strange attack on me as a pointless entity, "The Stonehenge of Canadian politics" as he would have it, is riddled with the kind of errors that favour "truthiness" over accuracy. Contrary to McCullough's uninformed rant, Green principles actually reject the leader-as-boss model of other parties. We need a Green Party in Canada precisely because none of the other parties are consistent in raising the spectre of the climate crisis, nor in advancing solutions to avert its most serious threats.

She's very much the Stonehenge of Canadian politics: pointless, yet cryptic.

It is clear that, at least for the moment, efforts at cooperation are being thwarted by the NDP and by most of the Liberal leadership candidates. It needs to be mentioned in this context that B.C. MP Joyce Murray stands out as the exception to all the rules. As a contender for Liberal leader, she is advocating many of the same things that I have been doing as leader of the Greens.

Elizabeth May is planning to use what parliamentary procedures she can to slow the passage of the budget bill as a protest against the way the Conservatives are ramming it through. Maybe she will convince Conservatives that this level of disrespect for the process of parliament is going to cost them too much.
