We are now in the realm of the illogical arguments that are based on "well democracy in Canada may not meet the standard of many other countries but it is better than some Banana republics." This argumernt has all the logical rigour of defending fighting in hockey by stating that it is less harmful than Cage fighting. Why is it that Canadians think that a second rate constitution, a second rate electoral system and a second rate democracy are about as good as it gets or can ever get? Are we truly such sheep that we can't even invisage a Canada other than that handed down to us by the shepherds. Are a PM appointed Supreme Court and Senate essential features of a Canadian tradition that ought to protected forever just like fighting in hockey.
By the way I think I erroneously stated that BC was one of the three provinces that allowed voters to reject their ballot I should have said Alberta. Lets think of what could be rather than defending the indefensible.
