A little more than half (55%) of Canadians are satisfied with how democracy works in Canada, and most think their Members of Parliament represent the views of their party much more than of their constituents' concerns.

Those are just two of the conclusions from a survey of Canadian opinion released Monday (Dec 3) by Samara, a charitable organization that works to improve political involvement in Canada.

RCI's Wojtek Gwiazda spoke to Alison Loat, the Executive Director of Samara, on December 4, as the House of Commons was preparing to vote on a controversial omnibus budget bill.
