Democracy is best served from the ground up

To the Editor:

After reading the letters of W. Allen McLaren and Mike Somerville, I am in full agreement with them, as they pointed out the undemocratic nature of the alternative approval process. My feelings are such that democracy is best served from the bottom up, and I believe it has to start with groups of all kinds, mainly community associations where the interest is generally community minded. What can be done when the executive cannot be roused to call a meeting?

Let me add to Lorne Eckersley’s column that democracy is a slow and tedious process, but it works!
