"Yet in many ways, the e-mails transcend a particular scandal. 
They provide a rare glimpse into the backrooms of power,
where unelected political aides spin journalists, muzzle
cabinet ministers and use feel-good announcements to deflect 
attention from a crisis."

Karen Howlett

A rare glimpse into the bubble of politics and power.

It is clear that this bubble is no where more prevelant than in Newfoundland and Labrador. Like the gas plant scandal will bring down the Ontario liberals, so too will Muskrat Falls bring down our conservative government. Open and transparent governments and processes are becoming a thing of the past.

Why did we let this bubble form. What has happened to democracy? Or did it ever exist as per my utopian view?
