Democracy Slipping Away?

A series of new national surveys suggest record numbers of Canadians are fed up with the state of our democracy.  Elizabeth May warns that “we are on a slippery slope to the loss of our democracy.” A Toronto Star article quotes Canada’s most eminent political scientist, Peter Russell, stating that a Harper majority is “an indication that parliamentary crime pays.”

In preparation for the next election, Canadians who value democracy need to devote all their energies to reversing the frightening cascade of anti-democratic measures which Elizabeth May, Joe Clark and so many others have catalogued.
