We, Canadian people, have lost confidence in the ability of Stephen Harper's Conservative Government to democratically govern Canada and to respect the foundational democratic structures and institutions of our country and the democratic aspirations of the Canadian people.
THAT we have lost confidence in the ability of Stephen Harper's Conservative Government to democratically govern Canada and to respect the foundational democratic structures and institutions of our country and the democratic aspirations of the Canadian people;
THAT the following actions of the Government and its ministers have added to a growing loss of confidence in the Government by the people of Canada and we the undersigned believe their occurrence is cause for the dissolution of Parliament and the calling of a new, democratically-monitored election:
-There is growing evidence exposing massive, intentional, structured vote-suppression of non-Conservative votes in the last federal election.
-The Government of Canada, through its Minister of Agriculture, has publicly stated it need not heed a ruling of a Canadian court of law with regard to the need to consult with prairie farmers via a plebiscite before dismantling the Canadian Wheat Board's single desk monopoly over sale of wheat on the prairies.
The Conservative Party of Canada during the last federal election, along with the Minister of Defence of the current Conservative Government, has consistently misled both the Canadian public and Parliament about the true cost of purchasing F-35 fighter jets, in addition to not opening these contracts to competition.
-The intervention and biasing by the Minister of Natural Resources of a federal Joint Review process of the Northern Gateway Project before the process had even begun, along with the Minister's contempt for Canadians expressing divergent opinions from that of the project's proponent, whose side the Government has chosen to take.
