Your Excellency,

In the last few days we've witnessed the Liberal Party of Canada, New Democratic Party of Canada, and the Bloc Quebecois, sign a coalition agreement that would see them seek, from you, the ability of the Liberals and New Democrats to form a coalition government supported by the Bloc Quebecois.

The Liberal Party is tabling a non-confidence vote Monday, December 8th, 2008, where they appear to be fully intent on bring the Conservative minority government down.

You have an array of constitutional measures at your disposal. I strongly urge you, as a Canadian citizen, in this situation, to call another federal election.

In the last federal election Canadians were never made aware of any possible coalition agreements. In fact, Liberal leader Stephane Dion denied any possibility of a coalition with the New Democrats. Canadians who voted for these three opposition parties voted under the impression that there would be no coalition government. While there may be voters who voted for these particular parties that would support this coalition government, it is evident, by public opinion, the majority of our electorate is against a Liberal-New Democratic coalition propped up by the Bloc Quebecois.

This, while constitutionally legal, is unethical and an underhanded swipe at democracy.

I strongly advice you, within your constitutional prerogatives, to call a federal election. As this is the best solution to this problem.

Yours sincerely,

[sign here]
