back to me with an answer to the question
I've been asking for a few months now;
What are your views on the monarchy?
Like several other candidates the answer
came via a campaign staff member (in this
case it was Mr. Murray Heinzlmeir). It has
taken a bit of time to get this response but
I understand the candidates are very busy.
So what does Mr. Trost have to say?
"The Monarchy is fundamentally linked to the rule of law and Parliamentary
democracy in Canada. Mr. Trost has talked to me on a number of occasions over the
years about the importance of Question Period, for example. The Prime Minister
and the Cabinet are held accountable for 45 minutes every day of the week that the
House of Commons is sitting. The importance of the Monarchy to our military is
also of historical and current significance."
cabinet government. While its true that some republics don't
have the executive face questioning on a regular basis, its not
true for all of them. This answer is perhaps a first in that it
would be better if it were shorter because the other points
regarding rule of law, parliamentary democracy, and the
military are all valid.
So what has Mr. Trost had to say about the monarchy during
his time in Parliament? Well, nothing of substance as it turns
out. As Mr. Trost has been a Member of Parliament since
2004 he has had plenty of time to have made some statement
on the monarchy. Overall, par for the course.
