A blog to give a voice to our concern about the continued erosion of our democratic processes not only within the House of Commons and within our electoral system but also throughout our society. Here you will find articles about the current problems within our parliamentary democracy, about actions both good and bad by our elected representatives, about possible solutions, opinions and debate about the state of democracy in Canada, and about our roles/responsibilities as democratic citizens. We invite your thoughtful and polite comments upon our posts and ask those who wish to post longer articles or share ideas on this subject to submit them for inclusion as a guest post.

Democracy and anarchy cannot coexist but stupidity is not so exclusive.

Or how the actions of a few can justify the excesses of others.

Support democracy but not stupidity.

Enough said.

I wish I could answer that question, it is different things to different people. There are the dictionary definitions (http://democracyunderfire.blogspot.com/2009/04/what-is-democracy.html) but I believe it is multifaceted and not that easy to define.
