Canada Needs Direct Election Of The Prime Minister


Exegesisme

Recommended Posts

You should take all my meaning which is not on a specific PM, but all the PMs in the sufferings of a constitution without enough obvious resources for the healthy leadership of the executive power. The next PM will still be in the same situation.

oh... you were serious then? Your post doesn't offer anything specific as to the nature of the "unconstitutional centralization" that you're alluding to...

The centralization of executive power in USA is very good, and is not a problem, the reason is that it is constitutional!

The centralization of executive power in Canada is not very good, and is a problem, the reason is that the constitution does not provide enough resources for the executive power to be sustainable and play a good leadership in an obvious constitutional way. Therefore, the executive power in the system of Canada has been centralizing in an unconstitutional way by stealing the power of the legislative branch.

This has to be one of the most absurd and confused things I've ever read.

The US system was created to prevent centralization. That it has happened anyways tells you a lot about the nature of political power.

Well, good for you. If you keep your standards low enough, you'll never be disappointed.

Is your standard for fine dining any food that doesn't give you botulism?

Is your standard for a great novel that the words are spelled correctly and and the pages are numbered properly?

Do you actually have a response that isn't petulant and content-free?

If your eye is full of false, then the truth is absurd. Preventing random centralization is just for the constitutional centralizing leadership. If only for prevent centralization, then what is used to unite the states, and why they need the united states?!

Don't even go there. I've put a ton of links in this thread to demonstrate that there are a range of different approaches to how powers are divided between elected heads of state (whether directly elected or elected by parliament) and heads of government. You and smallc have ignored them all and just bleated "but they're all the same".

I haven't ignored anything. There are not really countless ways, but merely differences in how precisely certain powers are divided between the formal executive and the functional executive. In Israel, for instance, the President has no power to veto legislation, whereas in most Parliamentary governments, the formal executive still has at least nominal power to refuse to sign bills into law.

Frankly, I think you just sort of chronically complain. You don't really have any sense of what is good or bad, and certainly can't point to a system that does it much better.

Our present political system is leadership by party, what we need is leadership by value.

Through Direct Election Of The Prime Minister, we can reestablish our national leadership by value.

BS. We just create a presidency. A PM is directly accountable to Parliament, and Parliament, may, at its pleasure, revoke its confidence in a PM and its government.

I suspect there have been more than a few occasions when legislators in presidential systems have wished they could do the same.

Beyond that, I simply don't see how it would improve the situation even the tiniest degree. There are a lot of people whose suggestions simply amount to "if we painted the roads yellow, everything would be better!"

Strengthening Canadian dollars, refining Canadian collective desires and forming new Canadian common sense, all these need

direct-election-of-the-prime-minister of Canada, and the qualified candidates should be widely inclusive by encouraging Canadian people taking part in politics of Canada with greater passion.

The US-system is dysfunctional because it is centred too much around one personality ie. the President. If the President is in constitutional troubles then the whole system is paralysed, which happened with both Clinton with the Whitewater-case as well as with Reagan with the Iran-contra arms deals.

Which one plays a leadership greater than US does globally in any area in long run? So all of them are not successful as US is.

You think if we change our government system we'll suddenly find $250M more people?

China has a great government system too.

      I'm going to be making some major changes to the forums over the next few weeks.
      The first, and likely the biggest change, is going to be in the name of the site, and the domain name you use to access the site (and consequently the discussion forums). I'm not going to release the new name yet (or the domain), you'll just have to wait and see what it is.  Not to worry, all of the old URLs will still work, everything will just be forwarding to the new domain URL scheme.
      I will also be modifying the sub-form categories somewhat, incorporating some long overdue changes.  Mostly, I'll be expanding the US Politics section, so that it has it's own section (similar to what we have for the Canadian Politics section) 
      Canadian Domestic Politics Federal Politics Provincial Politics Local Politics United States Domestic Politics Federal Politics State Politics Local Politics International Politics Canada / US Relations The Rest of The World The remainder of the forums I plan to keep the same.
      Of course I'm always open to suggestion for organization of sections, so please post below if you have any ideas.
      If you have any other good suggestions on reasonable changes we can make to the forums, please post them below. If they're good ideas, I'll do my research and see how easy it would be to incorporate into the new forums.
      Thanks!

      All over Ontario, people have been quarantined for weeks in order to flatten the curve and save lives, for the majority of places it has been working. Health officials are now saying that some places in Ontario have reached their peak and the daily number of cases are slowly starting to decline. However, long-term care homes are still at high risk and are being closely monitored to prevent a wide-scale outbreak.

      Canadians won’t be able to return to life as they knew it before the novel coronavirus pandemic until a vaccine is available, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Thursday.
      “Normality as it was before will not come back full-on until we get a vaccine for this… That will be a very long way off,” the prime minister said during his daily news conference on Canada’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak.

      As Canada confronts the worsening COVID-19 outbreak, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has hinted his government might declare a federal emergency, giving his cabinet extra powers to battle the pandemic.
      “It is a major tool and I can tell you that we already have a lot of tools that allow us to do what we need to do,” said Trudeau, at his Thursday news conference outside Rideau Cottage in Ottawa. “If there are other steps that need to be accomplished and can only be accomplished through invoking the Emergencies Act then we will do so.”
      Some experts have been urging the government to invoke the Emergencies Act, while others have shuddered at the idea, which would be an extraordinary step in the government’s response to the crisis.
      “We do recognize that the Emergencies Act is an extreme law with certain implications that would also require us to bring back the House of Commons to pass these measures,” said Trudeau.

      Bill Maher said it was fine to call the coronavirus the “China virus,” adding that a global pandemic was no time for political correctness.
      “‘What if people hear Chinese virus and blame China?’ The answer is we should blame China. We can’t afford the luxury anymore of non-judginess towards a country with habits that kill millions of people,” Maher thundered Friday in a monologue at the end of his HBO show “Real Time.”
