Democracy is for sale

Re: Kieran Report, March 22-28

Harry Bloy was just playing the game by the rules. The rules say “even democracy is for sale.” More money = more democracy. Jimmy Pattison’s owned and controlled companies gave $294,103 to the B.C. Liberal Party between 2005 and 2010, according to Elections.bc.ca. None of my friends gave that much to a political party. Maybe it’s also why the teachers are thinking about striking.
