... there is no reason we can't have a canadian elections website with secure logins that allow the people to vote on individual decisions.

I can't tell you how uncomfortable that notion makes me feel.

When we have people casting ballots on the basis of 'name recognition', I have little faith that these same people can/will generate qualified opinions sufficient to have them making decisions previously made by somewhat-vetted public servants.

This may seem to some to be a contradiction/hypocritical to my town halls initiative, but in fact, it proves the necessity of this social arena; only when engagement increases should such a profound shift in process be considered.
