Open letter to Governor General David Lloyd Johnston:
I am writing in regards to the most recent events in Canada. Very recently for the first time ever, the governing party was found in contempt of Parliament by the Speaker of the House. When this happened the house lost faith in the government and so an election was called.
Now, one month later, we have the same party and the same prime minister sitting down to govern again and yet no resolution to the reason for this election has been found yet. Since the governing party was found in contempt, our prime minister and his party have neither been absolved or suffered any consequences for their actions. Why is this?
What assurances do we have that our Parliament will be protected and respected? How can we as Canadians have faith in a democratic system when there is empirical evidence that the governing party will lie, cheat and steal in order to have its agenda proceed without fear of consequences?
In the past, when we could no longer trust the system or those elected to power, we, as Canadians, have been able to turn to the Governor General in order to assure that our democratic system is preserved and maintained for future generations. It is my humble request that you examine the proceedings that led to the previous party being found in contempt, and if you feel they are valid find some method to act on this.
In a Canadian court if one is found in contempt of court one is removed from the room. In Parliament, is there no such recourse?
As a Canadian citizen, I would ask that you strive to resolve this issue once and for all, either by absolving our government of their transgressions or by finding some means to assure that these issues do not arise again.
Thank you for your time, I know you will give this issue its due attention.
