The following article shows once again the EU is a defender and enforcer of public trust and is opposing corporate and government anti-trust and anti-democratic policies.
Why are the public not seeing more of this in North America and elsewhere?
There has been some improvements made or promised like restrictions on political donations in Ontario and the wild west of BC as recently reporded by the NY Times and the Globe and Mail. There needs to be much more.
Is it because we need to create or stregthen legislation to control lobbyists plus, political donations etc … and allow government watchdogs and regulators to do their job without influence? Are your elected and appointed officials making this a priority?
The EU still has room to improve.
Hopefully they and other Governments act on Poland’s recent anti-democratic bills and policies sooner rather than later. See the second Globe article below.
