Town hall meeting a step in the right direction

Re: Town hall hoopla, Jan. 17

To the editor:

Congratulations to the University Students' Council for organizing the town hall meeting on Jan. 16. We definitely need to build more participation and accountability into our political culture and this is a good start.

I only hope that the idea spreads to federal politics during the next election campaign. Governments are too removed from the rest of us and we'll get democratic accountability only when it becomes an election issue.
