Mayoral Candidate accuses current council of breaching democracy
Daniel Dromarsky targeting the 2009 sale of EPCOR as key example, and promises a more accountable leadership if elected

 

October 12, 2010, Edmonton, Alberta - Edmonton Mayoral candidate Daniel Dromarsky is accusing Edmonton's current city council members of breaching democracy.   Dromarsky's controversial comments come while he campaigns to be the city's next Mayor in the upcoming October 18th Edmonton Election.  Dromarsky points to the spring of 2009 when the Mayor and Councillors voted to sell the EPCOR assets owned by Edmonton citizens without consulting with them.

 

 "If I was a CEO of a major company who sold assets and made a large amount of money for the company without having a shareholder's vote, I would lose my job," Dromarsky says. "The EPCOR assets should never have been sold just to counteract a poorly spent and over spent budget without consulting the public.  It is important to the citizens of Edmonton for their Mayor and Councillors to act responsibly."

 

Dromarsky compares the quick sale of EPCOR without consultation, to the 2008 attempt by federal opposition parties to secretly form a coalition government.  The account executive played a key role in the "Rally for Canada" held at the Alberta Legislature in 2008.  The rally drew several hundred people together to speak out about what they called the breach of democracy behind that secret coalition attempt, and the tremendous cost that would have been endured by Canadian taxpayers if another federal election would have occurred as a result. 

 

Dromarsky vows to change public consultation processes in Edmonton if elected to ensure that citizens have a complete and valued say in any major decision involving a large amount of taxpayers' dollars.  Dromarsky makes it clear that he fully understands the difference between a direct and representative democracy, and insists that it is time for change.

 

“How can a government claim to represent when it doesn't ever consult the people after the election and ask them what they think? This is a huge disservice to Edmontonians, especially when our city owned assets are at stake. It is why I am always asking the question: "What do you think Edmonton?" and why I will continue to ask it even after the election should I succeed in my campaign to be Edmonton’s next Mayor.”

    I truly wanted to compose a small word so as to thank you for all the pleasant tips and tricks you are giving here. My time-consuming internet look up has at the end been compensated with sensible content to share with my neighbours. I would admit that we website visitors are undoubtedly blessed to dwell in a decent website with very many brilliant individuals with interesting advice. I feel pretty fortunate to have encountered your entire webpage and look forward to really more amazing minutes reading here. Thanks again for a lot of things.I have to express my appreciation to this writer for bailing me out of this type of setting. Because of checking through the the web and seeing tricks that were not helpful, I figured my life was done. Living minus the solutions to the issues you've fixed by way of this review is a critical case, as well as the ones that would have adversely affected my career if I hadn't noticed your web blog. Your main know-how and kindness in touching all the things was useful. I'm not sure what I would have done if I hadn't discovered such a stuff like this. I am able to now look forward to my future. Thank you so much for this specialized and amazing help. I won't think twice to propose your web blog to any person who desires counselling about this subject.
