Re: Secret deals by feds erode Canadian democracy (Letters, Nov. 2)
Gain a governing majority with just 39 per cent of the voting population? A majority that gives the authority to conduct a corporate threat to the well-being of Canadian society and values?
Sounds like our system severely needs a flush mechanism with triggers.
The U.S. offers a good example of the intricate importance of a vote in a democracy.
Conservative conduct, even with a position of majority, always lingers with the odour of deficit and rejection.
Smells to me like cause and grounds for installation of something in the nature of a 60 per cent binding authority clause, a move the electorate needs to cleanse the pipes again.
