Why Federal MPs Should be Running Scared
Federal MPs (with the exception of the Bloc) recently decided that they were going to continue to pork out at the expense of Canadian taxpayers, but following the judgement and decision by Nova Scotia Auditor General to call in the RCMP, they should be running scared.
While there are only about 1,400 members of this Facebook group, there’s a growing effort to make MP expenses public.
The question is ‘to what end’? We all know they’re all morally and ethically bankrupt, so what’s the point of another online petition, something that will generate loads of traffic for Facebook, but do nothing for democracy and responsibility in this country?
I’m at a loss. Someone tell me what the options are here.
