Canada’s Draft Proposal for a National Provisional Government

It’s reasonable and logical to predict that when 30 million plus Canadians discover and fully appreciate the Chinese have enjoyed joint governance status for over thirty years and they along with their Canadian co-conspirators embezzled many trillions of dollars for personal use and to help the Beijing leadership finance its global expansionistic ambitions they’re going to be historically livid – and so much so that the country’s old guard will be turfed out of office.  Therefore the RCC solicited the participation of second tier political parties – those registered federally and provincially who’ve been kicked to the curb by the dominance of the major four – to form a political coalition that’ll offer Canadians an alternate governance solution with fundamental reforms to prevent the dictatorship of wealth and special interests from monopolizing the parliamentary system.  

 

The provincially registered BC Refederation Party found what the RCC offered to be in line with their platform; and it offered the following outline and opinion.

 

Introduction

 

   

Brad Kempo’s draft proposal to reform Canada’s government structure attempts a huge task. There will be much criticism, and it is necessary that thoughtful people point out pitfalls and contradictions in the early drafts, so that more acceptable drafts can emerge.  

 

 

Also necessary is feedback of a more positive nature, which can attract more agreement by more people.  Both the negatives and the positives are needed.  The BC Refederation Party [Refed] is in the position of having researched a positive solution to this very problem for over 10 years already.

  

1    Is it possible to design a system that allows full participation in major decisions by  all the people of a modern political entity?    

2    Can such a system ensure full [total] control by the people of their politicians?  

3    Can the people exert that control with a minimum of time and cost? 

4    Is there already a working model that can be adapted to the Canadian political scene?      

 

How can we know for sure that the answer is “Yes” to all these 4 questions?  

 

 

Well, the answer to question 4 is that the people of Switzerland created a solution to this problem over 150 years ago and have been refining it ever since [it allows flexibility], and they are content with it still today.  So Canadians have 150 years of experience at our disposal as we build our own system. 

 

 

The aim of the BC Refederation Party is to change the political system of BC in favor of the people – to control the politicians and the corporations.  Brad Kempo’s RCC aims to do the same at the national level, so Refed’s mechanism for putting the people in control of BC can be relevant to RCC. 

 

 

Refed’s mechanism can be incorporated into the existing form of government in Canada, or into a new structure of government as proposed by Brad. It is the best guarantee that the RCC provisional government will be provisional.  

 

Here is a brief overview of Refed’s mechanism to control government: 

 

The “politician control mechanism” must have 4 elements.

 

It must be under the sole and total control of the people, not the politicians.   

It must be simple to operate.  

There must be consequences for its breach. 

It must apply to the bureaucracy and to the judiciary as well as to politicians. 

 

And here is a brief explanation of each of those elements :

 

Direct Democracy

Representative Democracy

 

 

It must be under the sole and total control of the people, not the politicians.  The participatory democracy mechanism must draw its authority from the nation’s constitution.  The nation’s constitution must draw its authority from the people.  It must be drafted, accepted and approved in a referendum by the people, and must be amendable only by a vote of the people. 

Under the existing archaic system the nation’s “constitution” is a statute drawing its authority from the politicians who passed it into law.  The people’s inherent right to choose their form of government has never been allowed.  The people are excluded by the politicians from the entire decision-making process.  

It must be simple to operate. Public servants are needed to govern the country, but all government actions must be subject to a people’s veto.  The vote to veto is activated by the support of a sufficient percentage of the people [only major issues get to referendum].  Four days per year are designated as voting dates if needed.  The result of the vote is binding on government.  The natural result is people control by default – acceptable government actions attract no referendum.  

Under the present “politician-dominated” system the people of Canada have no right to call a referendum. The people of BC have a referendum right that was written by politicians to be unworkable and useless – it is not binding on government. 

There must be consequences for its breach. The written American constitution is allegedly flouted by the American government against the wishes of the American people because no mechanism exists for the American people to control government between elections.  Canadian public servants must be automatically and instantly removed after a people’s vote and after due process. 

 Under the present archaic Canadian system the only consequence for unacceptable government actions is that one set of politicians is replaced by another set of politicians after a 4 year delay, and the dictatorial system itself remains in place.

 

It must apply to the bureaucracy and to the judiciary as well as to politicians.  The people’s right to supervise their public officials must extend to the secretive influence of the bureaucracy over the politicians, and to “social engineering” rulings of the judiciary. The people will rule on what is constitutional, not some court.  

Under the present archaic system the civil service has the dictatorial power to write regulations to expand on the statutes passed by the dictatorial politicians.  The judiciary is appointed by politicians to protect this dictatorial system.  

Final Words

 

The RCC will need to guarantee some such mechanism as the above if it is to attract a majority of the Canadian people. 

 

BC Refed believes that intelligence is randomly distributed throughout the population – it is not the gift of a few politicians.  The Canadian people will not support an RCC proposal to restructure Canadian government without a guarantee that their situation will be better under the new system. 

 

 

Brad Kempo gets the last word.  Refed agrees with him that when the people are allowed to participate in government decision making they are able to reverse poor decisions they may make.  Brad wrote:

 

The proposed [RCC] referendum system injects participatory democracy into the heart of the policy formulation process.  Whenever The People err, and on occasion they will, consequences of that misjudgment will be theirs to bear.  And in due course they will make the appropriate alterations.  If, for example, they don’t want to ratify a policy that provides government incentives to a class of corporations, and [if] owners and investors choose not to go ahead with projects, then The People will feel the effect of that in a lost tax base, a lack of jobs and the absence of spin-off opportunities and revenue streams.
