Holding the Green Party back is that it actually does not operate currently behind the scenes as it projects to its membership and to the public. If it were to find the right structure and governance to be a conduit for members to truly govern the party, it is a short step to invite the public to support us and join us in our quest to allow the voters in Canada to actually govern themselves.

MPs are puppets and spokespersons for the unelected cabals lurking behind the scenes. We all know it and get some brief satisfaction of 'voting out' a PM or a party, only to find the next group just as bad.
