Dear member of parliament,
Did any of you actually have to swear this oath or this something no longer required, note below ?
Just curious because I hear rumours that this government intends to hand Canada over to the United States by 2007, as if that isn’t bad enough I found this, note below;
I know they have only been in office less than a year and already the Quebecois are a nation and in two or three weeks we’ll all be Americans .
That could be good for something atleast if you are an American this will no longer apply to you.
Of course if your an American, Canada’s parliament should no longer apply either or any of the rules that govern this country.
Honestly your actions and/or inactions are that of cowards quite frankly.

Section 128 of the Constitution Act, 1867 indicates as follows:

Every member of the Senate and the House of Commons of Canada shall before taking his Seat therein take and subscribe before the Governor General or some Person authorized by him, and every Member of a Legislative Council or Legislative Assembly of any Province shall before the Lieutenant Governor of the Province or some Person authorized by him, the Oath of Allegiance contained in the Fifth Schedule to this Act; .
The oath set out in the Fifth Schedule reads as follows:
I, A.B. do swear, That I will be faithful and bear true Allegiance to Her Majesty… [Elizabeth II].
According to the Sixth Edition of Beauchesne’s Rules & Forms of the House of Commons of Canada:
Should a member violate his oath he [or she] would be amenable to the penalty of not being allowed to sit in the House of Commons. He [or she] may be suspended from taking part in the sittings while still remaining a member of Parliament, or, in a case of extreme gravity, a Bill might be passed to annul his election…
The power of dealing with treason is inherent in the Parliament of every country.

Maybe you were a little to busy with same sex marriage and “equal rights” to have noticed.
