@pmlagasse I would be stoked if there was more public discourse about degrees and dimensions of democracy.
@pmlagasse where did this fun fact come from? And what is criteria for comparing democracies?

@democracy101ca Yeah you bet. Looking forward to seeing what you folks churn out.
@pqpolitics @MyPetGloat her call for “Canadian version of Arab spring” is a call for democratic renewal.
