CEO Mayrand calls Elections Canada panel filled with politicans “non-partisan”


Elections Canada CEO Marc Mayrand proves once again what an utter fool he is or thinks we are with this laughable panel of “non-partisan experts” he’s put together to advise him.

Here are the glaring examples:

– John Manley, CEO of Canadian Council of Chief Executives and former deputy prime minister.

– Preston Manning, founder of the Reform Party of Canada.

– Bob Rae, retired Liberal MP and former Ontario premier.

– Roy Romanow, former NDP premier of Saskatchewan.

– Hugh Segal, current Conservative senator.

– Michael Wilson, former ambassador to the U.S. and Mulroney-era federal finance minister (see here)

Mayrand needs to be removed – no ifs, ands or buts.

    Well it’s an impressive list of Canadians but non-partisan? I don’t think so.

    The poor selection of this panel by Mayrand proves how wrong he is, and has always been throughout the years witnessed by the way he manipulates EC policies. He is delusional to this day, and the proof is in the pudding.
    There are policies not cleared up by him that should have been – years ago.
    This guy should be turfed to the curb along with his band of misfits.

    This raises a number of questions about EC and its relationship with Parliament. I am surprised EC has the power to appoint such a board. What role and power can such a board have? Who exactly chose the members?
    I am concerned this may be a ploy to head off some proposed legislation Mayrand and Kinsgley may not welcome. The expenses for the board will come out of EC budget? Better uses of scarce funds could be imagined.
    In short it is not a good idea to allow organizations to appoint such advisory boards.

  4. Frances Says:

    But who then should be on such an advisory board? If, by definition, anyone who supports a particular polictical party or – especially works for same (even if just as scrutineer) – is now lethally partisan, then the only appropriate appointees for said board are those who really don’t care which party is in power. More likely, it would be those ‘high-end’ people who, regardless of leaning, donate to more than one party at election time.

    We often hear the opposition accusing the Conservatives of playing “partisan politics”, well, duh, is that not a given? Are all politicians of differing stripes not partisans? Perhaps in commie or socialist regimes or dictatorships they can be considere non-partisan as in my way or the highway.
    As for Mayrand, how long is he going to be hanging around anyway? IMO he’s not up to the job, he looks lost in space.
