Re: Liberal secrets can’t be denied (Our View, March 8)

Does Premier Christy Clark really believe voters think she knew nothing about “the ethnic vote scam?” May 14 will show how many party voting people will still vote Liberal to run the province.

The latest Samara Democracy Report found that only 55 per cent of Canadians are satisfied with the way democracy works in Canada.

Samara suggests refocusing politics to place citizens at the centre, saying: “With the citizen at the centre, the political system would be both more representative and accountable, something that would contribute to citizens’ increased satisfaction with Canadian democracy.”

A vote for a political party is a vote to promote corruption. In a minority government, independent MLA’s hold an enormous amount of power.

Find an independent candidate to nominate in your riding. Time for a change powered by the citizens.
