Strip Lukiwski's Parliamentary Secretary duties
In light of Tom Lukiwski degrading homophobic comments released to the public on April 3.2008, we the undersigned call on the Prime Minster of Canada to strip Mr.Lukiwski of his duties as Parliamentary Secretary to the Leader of the Government in the House of Commons and Minister for Democratic Reform. Please refer to the statement made by the Honourable Chuck Strahl, Minister of Indian and Northern Affairs regarding David Ahenakew, the former FSIN Senior who made disgraceful comments regarding the Jewish community: \"I am extremely disappointed and disturbed by the decision of FSIN to reinstate David Ahenakew as a Senator within their organization. This decision should be reconsidered immediately. The past comments by this person have been very hurtful and inappropriate and go against absolutely everything that this country stands for. There is already a trial scheduled to deal with this issue, and it must run its course. Our government has valued the positive working relationship that we have had with the FSIN; however, based on this decision, we will now be reviewing that relationship. I have given clear instructions to my staff and my department to not participate in any meetings with FSIN in which Mr. Ahenakew is involved. Again, I want to strongly urge the FSIN to reconsider this unfortunate decision to have Mr. Ahenakew reinstated\" Mr.Harper,you need to hold Tom Lukiwski to the same standard as your government is holding Mr. Ahenakew. Do the right thing and show the Canadian public that discrimination will not be tolerated.
