Last week, a debate erupted after a Conservative MP called PM Trudeau a 'dictator' in the House of Commons.
I take a deep dive into what makes a government 'dictatorial', and the grey area between an ideal democracy and an outright dictatorship. I also examine the policy precedents that have already moved us to the darker part of the grey area, as well as the role that complacency on the part of the media & the populace play in our slide away from the democratic ideal.
Independent voices are more important than ever in today’s Canada. I am happy to add my voice to the public discussions on current issues & policy, and grateful for all the encouraging response from my listeners & readers. I do not believe in a Paywall model, so will not make access to my content subject to a payment.
