Cowboys for Social Responsibility have the full scoop. What follows is an excerpt.
In 2005, [Kerry-Lynne] Findlay decided to seek the Conservative nod in Richmond for the impending Paul Martin Parliamentary and electoral meltdown.
She didn’t even make it to the last ballot.
But what she did after being eliminated makes me wonder about the appropriateness of this appointment.
Why is Reid important?
As the article notes, Darrel Reid was Chief of Staff to Reform Party leader Preston Manning. In 1997, Reid received 27% of the popular vote as the Reform Party’s first candidate in the Eastern Ontario riding of Lanark-Carleton.
Following his stint in the Leaders’ office, Reid was President of the evangelical Christian group, Focus on the Family Canada.
Does Findlay’s support for Darrel Reid highlight the values she brings to the Human Rights Tribunal?
If it does, it’s an appointment that should never have happened.
A connection to Focus on the Family on the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal just doesn’t sit well with this feminist. The Minister, Vic Toews needs a letter. Click on his name for contact info.
