Chong Makes Statement Condemning Alleged Electoral Misconduct in GuelphMarch 1, 2012
Chong calls on Elections Canada and the RCMP to quickly conduct and conclude their investigation and hold those responsible to account
OTTAWA – Michael Chong, Member of Parliament for Wellington-Halton Hills, made the following statement today in the House of Commons:
Recently, allegations about electoral misconduct that took place in the federal riding of Guelph during last May’s election have generated a great deal of concern from Canadians.
As a Conservative Member of Parliament for Wellington County, whose county seat is in Guelph, I condemn, in the strongest terms, such reprehensible activity.
The individual or individuals responsible for such activity should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
That’s why I call upon Elections Canada and the RCMP to expeditiously conduct and conclude their investigation so that those responsible are held accountable.
As the Member of Parliament for Wellington-Halton Hills, our local campaign has always upheld the highest standards of ethics and accountability.
Mr. Speaker, the kind of subversion alleged in Guelph has no place in a First World democracy like Canada.
