Re: MP Wajid Khan’s defection to the Conservatives:
The switching by (former) federal Liberal MP Wajid Khan to the Conservatives is a symptom of a very undemocratic problem in Canada that must be solved as soon as possible.
To stop this rampant abuse of voters, politicians must be required to resign and run in a byelection if they want to switch parties between elections, party leaders must be required to pay a very large fine if they break election promises, and all politicians and government officials must be required to pay a very large fine if they lie to voters at any time.
If politicians do not pass strong honesty-in-politics laws ... within the next few months, they will show more clearly than ever how little they care about voters. — Duff Conacher,
