Fair representation for BC

Stephen Lewis is calling Jack Layton’s final public letter a manifesto for social democracy.

I would like Denise Savoie and other BC NDP MPs to tell us why their party is trying to continually delay and even deny the extra 30 seats in parliament for BC, Alberta and Ontario.

Before the May election when this was first proposed, Layton wrote to the Bloc Quebecois and told them that he and his party would block any legislation that would lead to a reduction of Quebec’s political weight in the House of Commons.

Democracy? With more than 50 per cent of its seats from Quebec, is the party really the NDQ — or can BC get its fairer representation?
