John Williamson: B.C.’s new teepee dictatorship

Posted: December 11, 2007, 3:40 PM by Marni Soupcoff
John Williamson

Representative government is a two-way street: The government governs, but citizens have the authority to remove lawmakers if their performance is sub-par. If citizens lose this right, while the state retains its ability to tax and spend, the outcome is authoritarianism. Countries on this path tend to be governed by a self-appointed, well-heeled cabal and are often reliant on foreign money for survival. We call them banana republics. A parallel to these republics is about to emerge in Canada –call it the teepee republic.
