What’s wrong with politics in Nova Scotia? EVERYTHING! The major problem begins with the narrow choices of those we are expected to elect. Candidates are picked by a clique of the“backroom elite” of each party ... who have their own agendas in mind when they go looking for a majority for “their party”. Candidates are groomed and rehearsed and packaged by the party, so you will elect them … for all the wrong reasons. Party politics is toxic for all who have been brainwashed or otherwise manipulated into believing our votes count … that we have the ultimate control of our governments when, in fact, events indicate otherwise.
