This question was asked today of Mr. John Baird at his election launch by Sheenagh McMahon. It follows on her open letter to Canadians – Defend Democracy.
“Mr. Baird, democracy is a fragile thing. It has to be defended every day of your life. So without avoiding an answer by talking about other parties, without citing the economy as if democracy and a healthy economy are mutually exclusive, they’re not, this is Canada, we can have both at the same time, without offering a conspiracy theory which is so ridiculous that only a fool would believe it, and Canadians are not fools, answer this question.
Why should you ever be given another chance to represent Canadian Democracy when you and your entire party have been in Contempt of Canadian Democracy for years?”
