I'm sure that many people will get out and vote this time, and cast their ballot based strictly on the smoke and mirrors show put on by Bob Young and his ads: ads which say the same thing (essentially nothing) over and over again.

Too bad we couldn't advertise the real need to know issues to create informed voters who would be aware of the truth behind the hyperbole. I'm not sure how you get knowledgeable, informed citizenry who can make wise voting decisions. This, I fear, is the crux of the problem which no change to the voting system can cure. Or am I just being pessimistic?
