The Guy Lauzon Story: I'll Sit This One Out

Guy Lauzon is the Reform Conservative MP for the Cornwall area, whose biggest claim to fame is being used as an example of how to disrupt committees and disrespect Parliament, in his party's manual on how to make a mockery of democracy.

In the spring of 2007, he was ousted from his position as the Official Languages Committee chair in a non-confidence vote (by all three opposition parties) for cancelling a scheduled meeting moments before witnesses were to testify. The hearing was being held to examine the cancellation of a Court Challenges Program, to which the government cut funding.

The Conservative government then, following procedures from what the media has dubbed the “obstruction manual", decided not to nominate a new chair, shutting down the committee’s work.

He uses the same running away tactic as member of parliament, so I have no idea why he keeps getting elected. Hopefully, this will be his last crack at wasting our money and time.

I'm doing something a little different with my blog, trying to organize archives, etc. so I'm using this page to link my stories on Guy Lauzon.

Feel free to use anything.

We've got to start preparing ourselves for the next election, by reminding Canadians that Stephen Harper is not the only problem this party has. They are the wrong fit for Canada and really must be put out to pasture, before they completely destroy this country.
