    Tragedy in the Commons

    "Tragedy in the Commons: Former Members of Parliament Speak Out About Canada's Failing Democracy" gives voice to over eighty former MPs and what they experienced as political participants in Canada's (now) near dysfunctional democracy. As more and more power is enforced by the party and is centralized in the Office of the Prime Minister and in the hands of the Prime Minister him/herself, MPs play the role of "clapping seals" filling seats in the House of Commons for the sole purpose of voting the party line. Dissent, freely expressed opinions, free votes and individual initiative on the part of MPs has been so eroded as no longer to exist in what should be the primary role of the individuals sent to Parliament to represent and promote the views and needs of their constituents. "Tragedy in the Commons" paints a bleak picture of democracy in Canada today and the reasons why so many Canadians view politics and politicians with distain and disrespect and why they stay away from voting in ever increasing numbers. Democracy in this country is broken and, under successively oppressive and subversive governments, is in grave danger of being extinguished altogether. Until MPs "grasp the nettle" and fight back to regain what is rightfully their role, nothing will change and the democracy Canadians deserve and care about will be forever lost. "Tragedy..." offers present and future MPs advice on the measures they can and must take to restore to Canadians what is rightfully theirs: a properly functioning, vibrant and meaningful democracy.

    Interesting perspective

    Good read. One always has a certain idea of what our elected officials and the processes they go through might look like. This book answers some of those assumptions. It also somewhat explains parts the continuing disconnection between our parliament with democracy.
