Root out 'Robocall' reponsibility

Dear editor,

As the extent of the Robocall scandal is slowly revealed it is becoming clear that a travesty of democracy has been carried out. This goes beyond partisan issues and every Canadian, regardless of who is responsible for the scandal, needs to be vigilant about insuring that our elections are fair and uncorrupted.

It is clear that the last election does not meet these very Canadian standards. I ask everyone who cares about democracy, New Democrats, Liberals, Greens, Independents and Conservatives to stand up for fair and democratic elections by sending the following words to The Governer General of Canada at his email address which is  info@gg.ca

"Your Excellency, We now need a full, transparent and non-partisan judicial inquiry that goes beyond the current investigation into possible Elections Act transgressions.

If there's any attempt to prevent this, to trivialize it, to stonewall it, to deflect attention from it, then you as the Governor-General should exercise your constitutional power to dissolve the government and send it back to the voters to obtain a clear and a legitimate mandate. " Sign the email and, as a proud citizen of Castlgar, add your name and address.
