A very good friend and I often debate local politics and one of the issues that confounds both of us is the apparent disinterest of the electorate to the corruption, cronyism and arrogance of our current and former political overlords.

I was having the same conversation with another individual whose opinion I respect and was commenting on the disregard of the voters wishes as expressed by the Honourable premiere of our province with the wanton disregard of the outcome of recent vote on electoral reform. The person I was speaking to, who lives in the premier is riding, said, “oh well, as long as we get preferential treatment on having our roads patched and ploughed I don’t care”.   Arrrrght!

Damnit. The pols know it.
