John's message "The system should not be rigged." is vital to Ridings

From: "John Feldsted" <>
Subject: The stuff we seldom see: Secret settlement reached in feud between Liberals, ex-MP
Read More:

"First, this �secret� settlement cannot remain secret. The Liberal party must make a pay-out and account for it. It is a Liberal Party matter, so the Party must make the payment which in turn should be reported to Elections Canada as an expense. The funds cannot come from Government as the government was not involved in the Party candidate selection process.
Whether the settlement will be taxable as income to the complaints is another interesting matter."

These incisions blocking democratic representation in an electoral district (riding) are not rare and are not confined to the Liberal Party. Political Party Leaders, back-room strategists and election teams want to keep candidate who are seasoned soldiers and will block out neophytes who may be equally capable but are untried.

When political boundaries are redrawn every 10 years, the problems become more intense. Every party has a plan to protect its star candidates who plan to run for re-election. The may mean rigging the candidate selection process in some ridings. Candidates running for a second or third term do not feel they should have to run a second campaign to secure their party nomination.

The may work for the Party power brokers, but is it the best solution for democratic representation? Electoral District electors should have the right to choose a candidate to represent them. Those who are happy with their current representative are likely to support him or her. When boundaries change, now electors should have the opportunity to endorse the incumbent or chose someone else. The system should not be rigged.

A nomination contest is not a sure thing even if an incumbent is running for a third or forth term. The incumbent must fight lethargy � supports who are certain that he or she will win they fail to cast a ballot. Incumbents have been upset when their support fails to show.

We do considerable hand-wringing over low voter turnouts. Candidate selection processes are the run-up to a general election and where party supporters, donors and volunteers are identified. Blocking a nomination race is not in the best interest of electors or democracy. We can�t expect to get electors interested if we block them out of the fundamentals of electing a representative.
