Margaret Atwood on democracy

In response to Margaret Atwood's criticism against Rob and Doug Ford's ignorant and shortsighted plans to close Toronto libraries, they suggested she run for mayor.

“I am not running for mayor yet. But if it comes to be true that people cannot voice an opinion unless they have been elected, then we are no longer in a democracy,” - Margaret Atwood

It's about time for someone to speak out against the Ford oligarchy!
