If we’re into politics, the upcoming few months should be an exciting time. Even if we’re not, it still should be exciting, at least from the stand point of comparing the differences in scope and approach with regards to the 2 respective countries.
Mr. Manly, in comments at his blog, gave some initial reaction to why Americans do not take much interest in Canadian style of politics.
Also, yesterday, in the Globe and Mail, there was a unique article with the perspective of how the American system is much more democratic than Canada. It gives further info about some of the main differences between the 2 systems. I do agree that in America it seems easier to participate and feel a part of it. Is this true, or more an illusion? Hmmm…..
Suffice to say, we’re going to get a lot of varying opinions from different vantage points, and it’ll be a great time to learn from contrasts and comparisons.
