Letter: MPs should be kicked out, disbarred

Sixty-seven Conservative candidates submitted false statements to Elections Canada, including 10 Conservative Members of Parliament.

To the editor:

Sixty-seven Conservative candidates submitted false statements to Elections Canada, including 10 Conservative Members of Parliament.

The matter has been tried in court and they have been found guilty by the Canadian Federal Court of Appeal for falsifying returns.

The appropriate legal remedy for violating the Elections Act is that they be barred from Parliament.

Those candidates who are themselves also members of the legal profession should be disbarred.

It was a money laundering scam, they have been caught, and found guilty.
