Guelph takes a stand for our democratically elected government

It's time to take action, Guelph...
From: Guelph CPC EDA

URGENT: Only weeks after the election, the Opposition parties have banded together to undemocratically remove Prime Minister Harper from office!

If you've been following the news, you'll know that Canadians are reacting in anger over this self-serving move by the NDP, the Liberals, and the separatist Bloc to overturn the results of the last election, which occured only six weeks ago. After receiving their worst election result in Canadian history, the Liberal Party of Canada is refusing to accept the will of the people, and are instead seeking to install Stephane Dion as the Prime Minister over the firmly expressed wishes of the electorate.

And you may be asking yourself, "What can we do to stop this madness?"

Well, you can make sure your voice is heard! By writing to the Editors of the Guelph Mercury, we can ensure that the public is fully aware of what the other parties are trying to do. We can write to the Governor General, imploring her not to accept the Opposition's request to form an unelected Government, contrary to the express will of voters on October 14th. And we can contact our local Member of Parliament, Frank Valeriote, and let him know that Canadians of all walks of life oppose this blatant attempt to overturn the results of the last election.

You can sign the paper petitions that are circulating around town, or online at www.canadians4democracy.ca. (We are presently exploring the option of making a copy of this petition available to sign at a location here in town)

And finally, we can stand together with thousands of fellow Canadians across the nation this coming Saturday, Dec. 6, at one of the many rallies that are to be held in support of our Government. There will be one such rally held in front of Kitchener City Hall this Saturday from NOON to 2:00pm... plan on carpooling, as parking will likely go fast!

Below is all the information you need to make your voice heard. Please be respectful in all your discourse, and above all else, let's make sure we hold the Opposition accountable for their actions!

To contact the Governor General:

When writing the Governor General, ensure that you respectfully refer to her by her title, "Your Excellency", or "The Right Hon. Michaƫlle Jean, Governor General of Canada". Ask her to respect the will of the people, as expressed in the recent election on October 14, and ask her not to allow the Opposition to form a government without the ratification of the voters.

Her e-mail address is: info@gg.ca

To contact the Editors of the Guelph Mercury:

You can write a Letter to the Editor, expressing your concerns, and publicly imploring our MP to not partake in this undemocratic deal with the NDP and the separatists. You can send your letter to them via e-mail at editor@guelphmercury.com, or via their online submission form located here.

To contact your Member of Parliament:

Frank Valeriote has publicly endorsed this undemocratic deal, after he vowed not to take part in such "shenanigans" during our recent election. (U of G debate, Sept.) He must be held accountable, and we must ensure that he keeps his word. Please contact his office via e-mail and by phone, or even in person, to let your voice be heard.

By Phone: (NOTE: Please consider calling BOTH numbers, Guelph & Ottawa offices. You may also want to continue calling until you get a live person, rather than leaving a message, to ensure that your voice is actually heard)
Guelph: (519) 837-8276
Ottawa: (613) 996-4758

By e-mail: (please send to both, one goes to Ottawa, the other to his Guelph office)
Valeriote.F@parl.gc.ca
ValerF1A@parl.gc.ca

Or in person: (Brenda Chamberlain's old office)
40 Cork Street East

Contact the Leaders of the Opposition:
You may also consider sending a letter to each of the three leaders of the Oppostion, decrying this undemocratic deal, and asking them to respect the results of the election. Their e-mail addresses are:
DionS@parl.gc.ca
Duceppe.G@parl.gc.ca
Layton.J@parl.gc.ca

There's still time to act! Together, we can indeed make our voices heard for the sake of democracy here in Canada. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to let me know.

Thank you for taking a stand for democracy, and for Canada!

    The idea that this coalition is anti-democratic is insulting. You can dislike. You can think it is bad for Canada. But it isn't anti-democratic. Conservatives just look like they are pathetically clinging to power with this type of spin.

    It is anti-democratic to include separtists in the governing of the Country. The Canadian people have never been fully supportive of the Bloc. They should be forced to be completely involved in this coalition or not at all.

    Anon - What is insulting is that you seem to think it is alright for a party that does not run candidates outside of Quebec should have the final say in any decisions for the rest of Canada.
    This alleged "coalition" is not possible without assistance from the Bloq.

    I want to express my deep concern, anger and frustration as this proposed move by the leaders of the three opposition parties. ..it is nothing but blind ambition and we elected a Conservative government not these three opposition parties.
    The three of them are standing up and telling us that Mr Harper has lost the support of the people. That is an out and out lie that they are using to further their own political agenda.

    We're not used to coalition governments in Canada (although they've happened on occasion --ie. 1980s Ontario), but if you look around, you'll see that pretty much every Western democracy (other than the US, Canada, and UK) regularly have functional coalition governments.

    What's happening here is not illegal, not a coup d'etat, not anti-democratic. By suggesting otherwise, Conservatives are actively misleading voters on the nature of our governmental structure and process. That, to me is unconscionable.

    We have so much voter apathy and ignorance as it is. By contributing to it (this latest situation, and a pointless election), the Conservatives have a lot to answer for.
