Published today in Vancouver Observer: We want our co-ops back @MEC @Coast_Capital

Today (2013-03-18) the Vancouver Observer news website published my opinion piece "We want our co-ops back".

It describes how the boards of Mountain Equipment Co-op and Coast Capital Savings have been changing the rules in ways that shift power from members to boards. This undermines the accountability of elected leaders to voters -- the same trend that caused our 2008 financial crisis.

But we can reverse the trend -- see how in the Vancouver Observer article.

[BTW the above linked article is a 2-page overview, partly based on my 24-page in-depth report with the same title but capitalized: "We Want Our Co-ops Back". Sorry for any confusion but I love that title!]
