On October 1 and 2, the leaders of five Canadian political parties will participate in a televised debate. You can submit questions for any of the leaders by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
My question for Mr Stephen Harper:
Mr. Harper, on June 3, the House of Commons passed a motion calling on the Government to stop all deportation proceedings against US war resisters and implement a motion allowing them to stay in Canada. All three opposition parties united to pass this motion.
In 2005, referring to the Paul Martin Government, you said, "The Prime Minister has the moral responsibility to respect the will of the House."
As head of a minority government, don't you have that same moral responsibility? How can the head of a minority government not follow the clearly stated will of the majority?
