Pxtl: Great points...but I have to say that from my vantage point, you're referencing elements of shorcomings, etc within the current paradigm.

I'm not a 'revolutionary'. Far from it. But it seems to me that if you have a design for something that constantly needs some kind of 'accommodation' or 'rejigging', then maybe you need to rethink what you've been seeing as assumables.

Your first point has to do less with the downside of having hyper-involved citizens...when really, it's about a greater level of engagement.

And the second? Well, the 'game' has been co-opted by this partisan, 'politics-as-a-sport' framing of provincial and federal governance. (Can they be redeemed? Maybe.) Which is why I'm more focused on local affairs and what can be accomplished. Besides, the ripple-effect in situations such as this can be mind-boggling.

This is an area in which I fervently feel RTH should be at the forefront.
