I agree with you that the government has not been very accountable on many, many matters, This most recent Government seems to be very un-accountable. Low voter turnout has multiple reasons but general dissasifation with politics in general I have found alot of Same old, same old comments. Our elected representatives seem to have forgotten they represent the people not the party, our government derives its power from the cosent of the people who they are suppose to represent, not big bussines, not the banks, the people. It seems once the election is over the people are forgotten about.

The Nova Scotia Right to Know Coalition is appealing to all Nova Scotia Candidates to address government's responsibility to be open and accountable.

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.
