Quebec gets the importance of legitimate municipal governance. Is there any hope Nova Scotia ever will?
No, and here’s why – legitimate municipal governance encourages progressive politics.
Province house and the 51 fiefs within don’t want anyone else at their party. Especially municipal politicians (and the “citizens” of those jurisdictions – in practice, the serfs, us).
Photo ops of our illegitimate HRM governance theater and our MLAs together abound, when it is convenient for MLAs, but otherwise, we have the reality of our arrangement fully transparent when hospitals are announced in Bayer’s Lake, and the Mayor and city staff are caught unaware, as was the case during the recent “election”.
Illegitimate HRM harms the people of this region and it needs to be resisted and dismantled at every opportunity. The opportunities surround each and every one of us, every day.
