Ok so i know very little as far as politics are concerned. I was always under the impression that anybody in theory could run and be elected into office. Is this the case? Is there a minimum standard of education/qualifications to be elected into Provincial or Federal office? If not than why is this? The job is a high profile job that involves making very important decisions that can have such consequences on our environment. You would think you would want the best of the best for the position rather than electing some bum who is lucky that his family was in the business. For me it just seems that there is a never ending line-up of these idiots just waiting for their turn to push their bullshit agenda.
