“The accomplice to the crime of corruption is frequently our own indifference.”
– Bess Myerson
It’s official, apathy has won a stunning victory in British Columbia.
52% of registered voters decided not to cast a vote in this election. More than half of the people simply do not care how this province is governed, or by whom.
This translates into a government being elected by getting just over 21% of BC voters to vote for them. That’s not a victory anyone in a democracy should be proud of.
It is simply appalling.
