Join Wednesday’s citizen rally over Robo-Calls

With the Robo-Call scandal, the integrity of Canada’s electoral process is at stake.
Will Members of Parliament stand up for Canada? Will MP Daryl Kramp ask the House of Commons for a full judicial inquiry into the allegations of 31,000 Canadians who believe that their right to vote has been compromised?

Those who want to hide in the shadows will quote us Stephen Harper’s line that this is a smear campaign conducted by 31,000 people from across the country. Mr. Kramp is our elected official and he is to represent the interests of the citizens of the riding and not the interests of suspected wrongdoers. Let the inquiry determine what the truth is. Our democracy is too important for political games. We need to know where Daryl Kramp and all our members of parliament stand.

All concerned citizens in Prince Edward Hastings area are invited to a Rally for our Rights on Wednesday March 7th at 5 pm at Market Square Belleville. Bring your family and friends. Do your part to hold our politicians accountable for the integrity of the electoral process.

We are asking for a full judicial inquiry into the role that Robo Calls may have played in suppressing the voting of Canadians in the last federal election. Every citizen needs to be deeply alarmed at how far our democratic rights have been eroded.

Saturday evening, the Downtown Doc Fest showing of the powerful video, If I Should Fall, charted the lengths to which our soldiers have gone to protect and to ensure the right to vote. 158 Canadian soldiers gave their lives to secure the democratic rights of the people of Afghanistan. Surely the sacrifice and memory of these soldiers and so many more before them must not be tainted by an attack on free and fair elections by any political party in Canada.

There is a time to step away from political squabbles and fight for our democratic principles and way of life. The RCMP and Elections Canada need to be given full rein to investigate and pursue wrongdoing wherever it occurred. They need to reveal their findings openly in order to restore confidence in our electoral process.
Stephen Harper, as our Prime Minister, has the power to mandate a proper inquiry. He is supposed to serve the people FIRST and his party second.
Let us all stand up as Canadians together for fair elections whatever our political affiliation. Come out to the rally at Market Square Belleville Wednesday evening at 5 p.m.
