Amongst other things, our Constitution guarantees freedom of conscience, freedom of thought, expression and belief as well as freedom of religion. Collectively, these concepts appear to be lost on both Kerry-Lynne Findlay and Stephen Harper.
In the House of Commons, Conservatives persistently obstructed and stifled debate. Now that there is an election campaign, they are taking that one step further and refusing to debate at all.
But then again, in addition to being controlled by Harper, Findlay is in a safe Conservative riding, so why should she bother showing up to an all-candidates meeting? She is going to get re-elected anyway. Why pay any attention to questions or concerns the voters in her constituency may have?
I'd enjoy asking her a few questions, too. Fat chance of Harper letting that happen, right Findlay?
