Why this is important to me
This is a digital version of the following paper petition: http://www.gregfelton.com/Petition%20to%20remove%20Stephen%20Harper.pdf
Burnaby-Douglas MP Kennedy Stewart has said he will present the paper petition in the House of Commons.... It is impossible to represent the majority of Canadians on paper. For this reason. This digital petition was created.
Stephen Harper is destroying the institutions and ideals that made Canada a civilized country. He has violated the Constitution, committed electoral fraud, misled Parliament, obstructed justice in a Senate inquiry, and betrayed Canada’s respect for international law. Worst of all, he has treated Parliament and Canadians with contempt by giving his political allegiance to foreign governments and corporations.
By any rational standard, this amounts to treason.
However, all is not lost. We could be rid of Harper and his unconstitutional despotism in an instant. Canada could again be a parliamentary democracy where civil rights and the rule of law mean something. All that has to happen is for Governor General David Johnston to dismiss the Harper government in the national interest, as he is constitutionally empowered to do.
On Oct. 1, 1947, King George VI vested Canada’s Royal Representative with full constitutional authority, among other things, “to remove from his office, or to suspend from the exercise of the same, any person exercising any office within Canada.” It is the governor general, not the public, that appoints the government; the prime minister, who has no constitutional standing, can be dismissed at any time.
However, Johnston has for some reason not yet exercised his Constitutional powers. We, the Canadian public, must convince him to defend this country and its citizens by dismissing Stephen Harper as prime minister. When a government does violence to the country and its people, the Constitution is our democratic protection.
Please sign this petition to demand that Governor General David Johnston come to the defence of Canada and put an end to Stephen Harper‘s abusive regime.
THE DISMISSAL OF STEPHEN HARPER IS THE ONLY PROPER DEMOCRATIC, CONSTITUTIONAL REMEDY.
