A Boost to Canada’s Democracy

​For my Canadian readers and any one interested in improving democracies.
The appointment process and powers of the Canadian Parliamentary Budget Officer have been strengthened.  Amoung this is measures to prevent unrealistic or idle promises during election campaigns.  Now the public need to push for equivalent at the Provincial and municipal levels where it is often the wild west still with all to often costly impacts.
Canada is playing catch up to Australia and a few other nations but is now ahead of the game compared to many others.  Our MP’s and the others involved in making these changes happen should be recognized to promote similar behavior.  If you agree contact them to let them know.
The most effective and efficient democracies have the largest involvement from the public and more than just at election time.
