A must-read

This is a particularly interesting look at Canada’s House of Commons, and how it has essentially become obsolete in today’s political world.

In the tenth grade I visited Ottawa as part of Encounters with Canada, and I remember my excitement when I returned home, telling my dad how clearly I could see Prime Minister Paul Martin from the visitors’ gallery above (I may have said he sweat like a pig. Farm girl!). I don’t remember, but perhaps at the time the House was half-empty. I was the nerdy girl with blinders on.

In any case, how discouraging to be a kid on a field trip to Parliament Hill, these days.

The House of Commons is a sham, Aaron Wherry in Maclean’s.
