A Letter to the Leaders

A Letter to the Leaders of the Four Federal Political Parties: "I encourage you not to back down on forming a collaborative government via a coalition (please pay close attention to that wording - collaborative government). Equally, however, I encourage you to extend an olive branch to Mr. Harper, to enable his active participation in developing the economic strategy for this country, assuming he is willing to truly collaborate. ... A true collaboration invites those who can bring diverse contexts into an environment of active and dialogic engagement. The process is far more complex than debate"
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one.

After reading Mark's letter on Collaborative Government, I was reminded of my own short paper on applying re-evolutionary industrial organizational theory to our local municipal stalemate. Do I spot a trend here? Like the money-system, perhaps the party-system is similarly racing to a spontaneous re-birthing?
