Hopeful for change but not yet
I am 60. For my first 40 years I grew up with the old two-party shuffle, taking turns at the public purse. Like most Islanders (Canadians), I think we became normalized to it.
This had several effects on me personally.
First of all, it turned me away from watching how we are governed (ruled) because it had a bad smell, so I instinctually turned my head away from it.
Second, both parties were strong, and the back and forth of politics continued.
Both parties looted us through patronage, but somehow we all thought it would somehow balance out in the end.
Third, we assumed someone else was guarding the hen house, that someone else would take care of it before it got too bad. Bill Kays Charlottetown
