In many jurisdictions, refusing to submit to a breathalyzer test invokes the same charges as those imposed for those who do submit and are found to have exceeded the legal blood alcohol limit. Logically, refusal implies guilt.
Similarly, Stephen Harper and his Conservatives’ failure to vigorously and openly cooperate with the Robocall scandal investigation can only be viewed as an admission of guilt. Democracy is not a partisan issue. Governments – frequently conservative governments – vehemently expound on the sanctity of democracy when rallying for wars against dictatorships, but frequently attempt to undermine democracy in their own nations, as we are currently seeing in many southern United States such as Florida.
Stephen Harper – you can either embrace this opportunity to exonerate you and your party, or you can admit guilt.
