A new idea: platform by the people

Hawa Yahia Mire was nominated the the federal NDP candidate a couple of months ago, and she’s proposing something new: a “People-Powered Platform“. She says

Some politicians present their platforms to the communities they serve.  Hawa wants to do things a bit differently and build a platform with you, so that it includes your needs, wants and dreams for your community from the beginning.  

I have my doubts that you’ll get very far proposing housing deregulation and unsubsidized public transit, but I do think it’s an interesting start to her campaign.
