To the Editor,
Should the right to vote go to all Canadian citizens 14 and over or only to taxpayers? i.e. Should prisoners and the socially assisted be denied a vote until they get jobs and pay taxes?
Is democracy’s freedom of speech muzzled because re-election is a politician’s prime directive and they’re too politically correct to tackle controversy because it’s not their money they’re spending? Should Canada hold a referendum on this issue and let the majority decide?
Should governments copy corporations and give elected leaders CEO power for five-year terms? This would enable minority governments to pass legislation just as if they were a majority.
