Vouching: Wishy-washiness at its best

Thanks to the Government of Canada for trying to take the wishy-washiness out of our election system with the Fair Elections Act.  You can’t get more wishy-washy than the practice of vouching:  people without ID can vote if a family member or friend vouches for them.  Some people’s shorts are in a knot over this—hard to believe when there are many ID options to choose from.

As usual Anthony Furey gets to the crux of the issue when he says,  “Well if you ask so little for so long, people get a little indignant when you finally do ask them something basic.”  In case you missed it, you can read the full article here.

It’s amazing how the issues that should get people’s shorts in a knot flow off them like water off a duck’s back.
