Vision PEI aims to hold politicians to account
A discussion around a kitchen table six months ago has led to a new political movement on P.E.I. with more than 100 members that aims to create change in a non-partisan way.
Vision PEI has set a mission to ask politicians hard questions, rather than just complaining.
"What we will try to do is to give people our sense of the kinds of questions that need to be asked," said Vision PEI spokesman and retired CBC journalist Ian Petrie.
"Why can't we have an education system that's the best in the country? Why can't we have pesticide regulations that are the best in the country? There's no reason we can't do that. Again, these are not easily solved questions, but we need to ask the right questions and start demanding that better things happen."
Petrie said Vision PEI doesn't plan to just concentrate its efforts during the upcoming election. The group expects to be around for years.
