Vic Toews should resign
February 18th, 2012
OTTAWA - New Democrat leadership candidate Paul Dewar has issued the following statement:
"Over the past week, the Minister of Public Safety has failed his ministerial responsibilities.
First he introduced Bill C-30 which undermines Canadians' online privacy. Then he accused Canadians who raised privacy concerns of supporting child pornography. Today we learned that he had not even reviewed the most intrusive provisions of the bill before introducing it in the House of Commons.
Canadians expect better. I call on Mr. Toews to step down as Minister of Public Safety.
The buck stops with the Prime Minister. He must hold his cabinet members to account."
