Crisis? What Crisis?

Some might look at a widespread disconnect between the ruled and the rulers as a crisis, but I suspect our prime minister does not. I suspect he considers it a feature rather than a bug. Democracy is much too messy for him. Better just to leave the driving to Steve. Don't look for any moves to reform the system that will close the gap in any meaningful way, from that quarter. Senate reform is a distraction. Giving MP's and committees more power and meaningful electoral reform is what is needed to reenergize our democracy, but somehow, I don't think Stephen Harper is interested.
