ACTIVE DEMOCRACY IN NANAIMO



WEVote NANAIMO - Active Democracy in Nanaimo

Gordon Halkett, WEVote Canada founder explains the idea behind both the website and the Facebook Group:


"We Vote Canada is about supporting/promoting the idea for online voting, but I acknowledge that that is likely many years away. Most every social movement starts at the grass routes,which is what we are doing here.


We Vote Nanaimo is a way to bring awareness and an acceptance of voting online to the politicians, and to the public.

I/we want to open the door of communication between the public & our appointed/ elected representatives. They need to hear what the people think, and the people need to hear what they think/ or decide upon. We need more communication & more facts.

I and WVC is non partisan , and we will post & discuss timely topics from any group, or person who has a topic, that I/we think could benefit from public input, IE -a vote- with the results published openly- without editing.

I/we will publish & send the voting results directly to the elected/appointed representatives on a timely basis- so everyone knows.
"

  1. It would be GREAT if taxpayers could actually vote on expenditures instead of council. It would be much more democratic and fair with NO hanky-panky favours for special interest groups or individual buds.
