LETTER: Arguing democracy or ‘femocracy’
Michelle Mungall’s column in your June 11 paper was an interesting diatribe in defence of democracy in which she urges us all to speak up in between elections.
I can never resist such a request especially when it comes from our exalted MLA. The truth is though… Michelle was elected to her job to represent the NDP in a decidedly un-democratic way, in that, only women were allowed to run for the position.
I don’t call that democracy, I call that “Femocracy”.
If Michelle truly believed in democracy she would never have accepted the job under those conditions. Apparently, she likes to “talk the talk”, but not to “walk the walk”.
