Erin O'Toole has taken the time to reply to
my email. Unfortunately, I wish his reply
had been better. Long story short Mr.
O'Toole has refused to answer my question
regarding the monarchy. Mr. O'Toole is not the first
candidate to refuse to answer my question regarding the
monarchy but his refusal is the most disappointing. Anyways,
lets see if Mr. O'Toole has had anything to say about
monarchy in other contexts.
various members of the Royal Family on different occasions.
These quotes don't necessarily fall under the category of him
having 'defended' the monarchy, but they do represent a
decent knowledge of it and willingness to discuss it and how
it relates to Canada. Which makes it hard to pick a quote that
exemplifies all of them. The one I've chosen is based mostly
on its uniqueness:
"Mr. Speaker, troubling reports out of the United Kingdom indicate that a Canadian
terror suspect is being pursued with respect to possible risks to the Duke and
Duchess of Cambridge travelling in India. I ask that the Minister of Public
Safety update the House and confirm that CSIS and all of our security agencies are
providing co-operation in this international investigation."
number of references is encouraging even if they are fairly
minor. Finally there is the fact that Mr. O'Toole supports
CANZUK. While the idea has obvious economic benefits it is
also pretty upfront about how important it holds our shared
monarchy to be. Overall, Erin O'Toole is an interesting
candidate. I just wish he'd give answers to questions asked.
