In a CBC interview Honest Wade said he was not in favour of election reform the old first past the post works just fine.. He said this even though he acknowledged the need for reform during the election campaign. Added to this abrupt reversal, it must be noted Honest Wade was not voted for by 60% of the island electoral. Nevertheless he won a majority government with less than 40% of the vote, so we don’t need reform eh???The Prime Minister of Canada recognizes the need for election reform and here we have the premier of Canada’s smallest province disagreeing. Why would he do such a thing in the face of so badly needed changes to the voting system. Well please read a portion of what ‘Red Like Me” think, it certainly makes sense to me.
Quote from Red Like Me
The Patrician family entitlement of Charlottetown elite is inbred throughout Brighton and the political parties of PEI. They do not want any change, the well accepted practice of two ‘Parties’ taking turns looting the Public, for the last 100 years, has certainly ‘found its groove’.
The ‘Cradle of Confederation’ may be a less appropriate moniker for PEI, like wise the ‘Gentle Island’ brand does not fit any longer, a National image of PEI is clearer, “The Playpen of Liberal Corruption”.
Beyond the matter that most Islanders did not vote for Wade Maclauchlan and his popularity is failing the entitled Patrician boy is on thin ice, his bias and loyalty only to the ‘Party’ are unacceptable from any Premier in Canada. Maclauchlan is a sham. Justin Trudeau talks about electoral reform and Maclauchlan is clouding the water, or is it more lip service?
God Bless and keep reading.
