Living in Ontario, I would hazard a guess that the excesses of the provincial government are not as obvious as those in the less populated provinces. However, when one looks at the elitist attitudes of the Federal government, one must conclude that such behvior is widespread throughout both the provincial and federal levels. It can only cause one to stop, take pause and ask "who are these people? And how is it that "they" represent ME"? The only answer that comes to mind is "they don't"!
Where is the representation? Where is the sense of responsibility towards the constituency? You have to ask whether the Canadian Government, in
general, a democracy or one of the finest examples of Blue Smoke and Mirrors and Population Control ever!
