Mr. Power, you are absolutely correct that we have become so apathetic that politicians will use our apathy to push ahead with any agenda they think will pass the smell test. I have ranted for years that we need real electoral reform and need the ability to recall politicians and parties when they take actions that are clearly not in the best interests of their citizens as a whole. Whether you agree or disagree with me on that point, Muskrat Falls is, in my opinion, the most blatant example of such tyranny. The government's "justification" for this project is a sham but they are trying to cover up the details by imposing legislation like Bill 29 and removing any regulatory oversight from the PUB. To put it simply....this is a crippling financial and fiscal decision that cannot be undone...and at this juncture, we have no way to stop it. Kicking the PC's out in 2015 will not do it as, by then, it will be too late. It will be forever to our shame if we allow this administration to continue on this path!

Only two comments on the attempt by devious political operators to undermine the operation of our political system and the ability of citizens to perform the most basic function in a democracy - the right to cast a vote. Amazing. Democracy will die, not by war or revolution, but by apathy.

Is this any worse than promising people you're going to fix health care, getting their vote, and then letting it continue to spiral into bankruptcy while you give yourself a big pension, increase your own salary, and very quietly jump the queue at the hospital whenever you need it yourself? Is it? Because that's been going on, non-stop, for decades without a peep.

robocalls have been used by all parties for the past 30 to 40 years where have you been

Saelcove So we should not prosecute crime just because it has been done for years? Second.. the issue isn't robocalls, but voter suppression, and furthermore, I am sure you know it and are just trying to blow it off as insignificant.

So Saelcove you are saying it is okay to continue using fraud and voter suppression based on the fact it has been going on for years? I just want make sure I got that correctly. What kind of person are you? You are saying it is perfectly okay for people to commit fraud in order to gain power. You must be one of the trolls for harper that "correct mis-information" on the internet.
