Petition to Justin Trudeau

Whereas:
  • Canada is committed to protecting the rights of women from any forms of sexual abuse, harassment or discrimination;
  • Our current government is committed to promoting a "feminist" agenda, in both policy and budget, and has adopted a clear zero-tolerance approach in dealing with allegations of sexual misconduct against Members of Parliament;
  • On the Prime Minister of Canada's official website, it is made clear that any form of sexual misconduct against women is "unacceptable";
  • Four Liberal Party of Canada's Members of Parliament have resigned or been removed from caucus over alleged sexual misconduct since Justin Trudeau became the party leader in 2013;
  • The office and position of the Prime Minister of Canada should be held to an even higher standard than other Members of Parliament or caucus members;
  • In televised statements, Justin Trudeau has stated that women who make such allegations should be supported and believed, and that the rules of appropriate conduct applied to him as well as to other politicians;
  • Allegations of sexual misconduct against Justin Trudeau and his dismissive attitude toward them are both unacceptable and have resulted in a loss of confidence in him by the citizens of Canada; and
  • Failure of elected members of the current government to condemn the aforementioned alleged sexual misconduct will result in a loss of confidence in them by the citizens of Canada.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon Justin Trudeau to be held to the same standards as he has set for his caucus.
