Green Party candidate response on openness and accountability (Michael Dewar)

I agree. Citizens must feel engaged. In fact, it was realizing my own disconnect from the governance of our country that led me to want to enter politics in the first place. My belief is that citizens must get more involved, and demand that their leaders interact with them, in a way which is open and accountable!  

Thanks for broaching this subject with me.

We members of the coalition are convinced that at least one of the major causes of low voter turnouts is because citizens don't feel engaged in the process.


Your reaction to this would be appreciated.
