Recall Legislation Please

[ 0 ] June 23, 2015 |

robbing us blindI did a quick online search for the words – disdain and politicians. There was an amusing amount of articles about just how badly we view politicians.  Not just Ontarians, not just Canadians, but worldwide.

It also appears that our disdain for politicians combines with the belief that they are ripping us off.  I wish I could point to some oddity, such as too many elections in a short period of time but that doesn’t appear to be the only reason why we loathe politicians as much as we do.  We believe they are dishonest and disproportionately so.

Are there good people running for office and getting elected?  Yes, I know a few personally.  The sad fact though is that far too many are shifty eyed egomaniacs who want to stick their nose firmly in the trough of the public purse.

They hide their ideas until they manage to get elected, and then they shove through policies that should never see the light of day.

The ability to get rid of these birds is getting harder.  Far too many self serving political rules have been put in place to take the public out of the equation.

I feel like a broken record, but we need recall legislation.

One only has to watch what is happening in Ontario with the Wynne government, the Hydro utility sale, the Sex Ed Curriculum etc.

I’ll say it again – Recall Legislation.
