Canadian Heritage Minister Bev Oda accepted campaign contributions from the very businesses she is supposed to be regulating. This isn't the way things are supposed to be. Let's all review the basics, shall we? Policticians are elected by citizens in order to serve the interests of citizens. They should not be accepting money from and forming obligations to businesses – particularly ones they are supposed to be regulating in the public interest.

I know it's naive but, really, we can do better.
