Hor­gan ad­mirable in TV de­bate

Times Colonist - - Comment - Diana Pogue East Sooke

It’s time to end the pol­i­tics of de­ri­sion and fear ably demon­strated by the leader of the Op­po­si­tion dur­ing Thurs­day night’s tele­vi­sion de­bate on elec­toral re­form.

Premier John Hor­gan was ad­mirable in his at­tempt to keep his fo­cus on the dis­cus­sion at hand, with lit­tle help from the mod­er­a­tors.

Our po­lit­i­cal sys­tem is due for a ma­jor over­haul. Vot­ing for a sys­tem of in­clu­siv­ity and col­lab­o­ra­tion is the only way to go.

It is al­ready be­ing demon­strated in some mea­sure with the NDP and the Greens.
