Re: Close vote benefits B.C., Editorial, May 11.
It isn’t the chairs in the dancehall that need to change, it’s the dancehall itself.
We have governments, both provincial and national, whose members’ only accountability lies with their party. Not to government as a whole. Not to the province or the nation. And never to the people. This has to change.
We the people have a right to be heard more often than every four or five years. We the people have a right to determine which laws govern us. We the people have a right to hold politicians accountable.
The only viable option right now is direct democracy. Bring that about, and then you will see true change.
