Mulcair's Coalition Flip-Flop Is Bad for Democracy

Recently NDP leader Thomas Mulcair said he would be open to forming a coalition with the Liberals, after previously denouncing the idea. Canadian democracy cannot the constant coyness of the sort Mr. Mulcair is now offering; purported claims that he's a serious candidate for prime minister on the one hand, which are then completely undermined by promises to "work with other parties" and reminders that the NDP was "willing to make Stephane Dion the Prime Minister of Canada" on the other. Opportunism of this sort simply reenforces voter apathy, and justifies the entirely credible suspicion that Canada's political elites don't really care much for the preferences of the public they purport to govern.
