MMP does not mean appointed party hacks

Columnist Andrew Coyne writes another excellent piece in the National Post today (cross posted on his personal blog) called "MMP does not mean appointed party hacks". In it, Coyne writes, "the experience in other PR countries is that list members tend to be chosen democratically, by internal party elections...And in fact all four of Ontario’s major parties have formally committed to do the same. As one would expect -- if competition between parties were not enough to ensure a more open process, agitation from the membership almost certainly would."
