"There can be no daily democracy without daily citizenship."-RALPH NADER
To be healthy and vibrant, democracy requires the participation of its citizens. Citizen participation influences the nature of democracy, and in turn, charges how democracy interacts with you. What we want to know is how democracy affects your everyday life here in Alberta.
