There's something happening here but what it is ain't exactly clear...at least to many of the province's politicians. Over the past three weeks, Liberal leadership candidates have promised to listen to public - who seem to be tired of being seen but not heard by those who are supposed to serve them. However, none of those candidates have committed to specific structural reforms that will make it more likely legislators will actually do so in the future.
None of them have committed to changing our political system - a system that, in effect, affords the premier near dictatorial authority between elections and sees legislators put the interests of their party ahead of their constituents or even their own consciences.
That suggests to me those who hold political power in this province are more interested in keeping it in their own hands than giving it back to the people who elected them - clearly failing to understand the need to restore credibility to a political system that's sorely lack it.
