Changes to act may be unlawful?

Editor: Premier Robert Ghiz can't speak for Islanders regarding Senate reform. The Ghiz government changed the P.E.I. Election Act requiring 25 signatures for candidates to run in a Provincial Election instead of 10 signatures to sign a candidate's nomination papers. The Ghiz government hasn't proven it is lawful to change the P.E.I. Election Act to maintain the two party system on P.E.I.

I think it is a joke when politicians speak of political reform. No politicians speak about removing the party leader's right to sign a candidate's card. Canada is modeled after the British system. I support abolishing the Senate, the Senate is just another political patronage dumping ground like the P.E.I. Supreme Court.

Canadians have good reason to scorn politicians.
