    Excellent research. It is a true reflection of the way things work on the Island. Voters deserve more transparency and honesty from their government. Procedural changes such as these will help bring us closer to a truly democratic government. Every Islander should read your proposals and I urge all readers to share you messages with their friends and neighbours.

    Kevin has hit the nail on the head. The Attorney General can, and does decide whether to squelch a criminal case or to prosecute the case. The Provincial Government can operate like the mafia with no fear of prosecution. The RCMP will not even investigate criminal allegations against provincial officials before getting clearance from the Attorney General’s office.
    The Catch 22 with Kevin’s proposal to make the AG accountable to the legislature is that the legislature can also squelch allegations of government malfeasance at the will of the Executive Council..
    I like the idea of an independent “True” Integrity Commission but this sounds much like the function of an Public Ombudsman. Robert Ghiz fell back on his election promise to establish the office of a Public Ombudsman and proceeded to operate as a mafia don.

    The thing about government is that it has the power to create and repeal legislation. If any free thinking politician is involved in the drafting of new legislation they will quickly learn they can overcome most obstacles if there is a willingness and consensus to make it happen.
