Of course a properly run government would do its job correctly. Few do. For example the Liberal government of Ontario messed up electricity supply and an NDP government of B.C. set the ferry system back decades by trying a quick fix called fast ferries, without listening to experts who told them they weren’t suitable for near-shore routes. And a proper organization could be contacted quickly.

But Ms. May is a slick marketer in claiming niceness. Elizabeth May is a politician.
