[Re: "An abortion of democracy" November 3, 2005]

I am writing to say how much I enjoyed Sara Hanson's article, "An abortion of democracy." [The article detailed] a documentary that was completely shot by students who interviewed the citizens of Calgary in many locations. I am glad to see the Gauntlet addressing the issue of voter apathy due to the general feeling of being disconnected from the political system in Canada and Alberta.

I believe in the near future that more Canadians will participate in our political decisions through the Internet,we will be able to vote on what is done with our tax money, how much tax we will pay,how much money the schools will receive, how much will go to health-care,how much will go to infrastructure and roads, how much to the military as well as what laws we want to support and to elect the people that enforce these laws.
