i am all for banning parties altogether. What we need is objective people without party agendas that can work together to govern. As i keep saying, chuck the crap out and keep the good from each rather than choosing both the good and the bad from one.

There, I created a poll for it here.
Cannuck, a non-partisan system does not necessarily mean that parties are banned, but simply that they are not officially acknowledged. A person could still be a member of a party, but no party name would appear on his ballot, his party membership woudl not be acknowledged in Parliament (so the PM must be elected by the house), and so caucuses are caucuses of the House rather than party caucuses, etc.
It doesn't necessarily mean that parties are banned per se.
Not what I meant, M. I meant the 3rd party crap that I hear on the radio these days. Where union A, which is pro-*some-left-party* doesn't like MLA Barnet Suchandsuch because they are a m,ember of the "evil" party. Basically 3rd party muckraking ads are what I don't want to hear.
