CAPP is Finally Getting the Respect it Deserves. And in the Globe No Less!

I found myself quite upset by a column written by John Ibbitson for the Globe recently, where he suggested that Canadians do not protest. enough.

That we are complacent and perhaps even a tad boring; my interpretation of his words, not verbatim.

I, in turn, suggested that he needed to get out more.

So it was nice to read in today's Globe that CAPP was finally starting to be taken seriously, as a group that could exact real change in the way that this country is being governed.

Some great comments at the end as well, so be sure to read them.

Civic reinvolvement
With shenanigans in Ottawa proceeding apace, some public agitation against prorogation is welcome and necessary

Those Facebook-convened Canadians Against Proroguing Parliament failed to change Stephen Harper's mind, but their sentiment endures. There is a national appetite, and this is a national moment for a new movement advocating democratic accountability in Canada. It will succeed if it casts the widest
possible net ....
