Last time I looked there were 76 countries world-wide that have entrusted their prospects to coalition governments.
That includes all of Europe (except for Hungary, Scotland, Spain and France). It even includes the model our parliament is based on: London.
Some countries go further and guarantee cooperative government by using proportional representation.
Laws they pass actually represent the opinions of an absolute majority of voters, not our 40 per cent of less. And England seems to be heading down that road, too.
In 1968, for those of you who remember it clearly, an alliance between Liberals and the NDP brought us the Canada Pension Plan, the maple leaf flag and Medicare.
A century before that, Sir John A’s “Great Coalition” brought us confederation.
Have you watched Ottawa’s Question Period with all those Third Grade brats squabbling over sandbox supremacy?
Have they not learned that two heads are better than one and prefer to concur with the Red Queen of Wonderland whose cure for dissent is off with their heads?
I still believe two heads are better than none. In fact, the more the merrier. Collaborate in the democracy project. Vote on May 2.
