Mr. Speaker, the UN representative also confirmed that there would be elections in Afghanistan in 2009 and 2010. As we know, Elections Canada played an important role in the 2004 Afghan elections.I think, if we ever have an election again, every reporter on the campaign trail with the Tories (provided they are allowed within 300 metres of Psycho Steve), should ask whether the PM has confidence in Election Canada's ability to run a free and fair election, in Canada? They should ask him this every day, until he answers the question, yes or no. H/T to Aaron Wherry. Recommend this Post
Could the minister tell me whether Elections Canada still has the confidence of the government and the minister to do the necessary work in Afghanistan?
