Complacent Electorate in Canada? The Duffy Scandal 5/16/2013
What was meant to be a snarky joke, ended up getting posted on 6 o'clock news, due to it's originality. While many keen political junkies are all over the story of Senator Mike Duffy's $90000 gift received from the Prime Ministers' Office head, due to a financial audit finding, I suspect that the majority of Canadians are not keenly interested in matters of this nature. I state this based on the historic fact that 50% of voters do not vote at all. Anyway, I hope my little comment serves as a wake up call that we all do need to pay attention to what our elected and appointed political officials are doing, and hold them accountable!
