The reputation of B.C. politics is getting worse. The weekly political scandals and incompetent screw-ups have been so numerous they don't hold traction long enough before we are on to the next one.
The media can hardly keep up, and the public is tuning out with Fatigue-Apathy-Corruption-Syndrome. (FACS)
Example: Basi/Virk/Christy Clark insider information legal mysteries are still unresolved after eight years.
Lobbying and insiders breed crony corruption. Big Corporate and Big Union donations invite corruption practices into the process.
These type of donors breed lobbyists and insiders seeking advance inside information and/or favours, which puts the entire bureaucracy and politicians in a tight spot.
Some politicians enjoy it, as it gives them a sense of importance, until they are suspected, exposed, and step down in disgrace.
How can we ever expect to clean up the shady backroom dealings of government, unless we change the system?
Is anybody even trying to change it, the Liberals or the NDP?
The BC Conservatives, in their policy document, "Article 2. Democratic Reform and Accountable Gov't, 2.1.12," propose to limit donations from individuals only, and ban donations from corporations or unions.
The federal electoral system enacted this, which appears to be working well, as it certainly hasn't hampered the NDP's rise.
