Liberal MP Adam Vaughan is raising eyebrows for attending a protest against Bill C-51 over the weekend.
Being an MP means you listen to all sides in a debate. Being accountable includes being accessible. Attended rally to hear concerns of C51— Adam Vaughan (@TOAdamVaughan) March 15, 2015
The Liberal Party supports the anti-terror legislation put forward by the Conservative government following the attack on Parliament Hill in October.
The next day, the Toronto Member of Parliament took to Twitter to defend his attendance at the #StopC51 rally outside Toronto's Nathan Philips Square on March 14.
When asked on Newstalk 1010 about what issues Vaughan has with the legislation, he told host Desmond Cole:
“It centers around the vague language of what constitutes terrorist activity. It seems to, in a very sloppy way, bleed across into civil disobedience.”
Cole went on to challenge Vaughan on how he would fix Bill C-51:
“What’s the best way to fix this -- and I’m in complete lock-step with my leader on this -- the best way to fix this? Is to un-elect the Harper government.”
SOUND OFF: Was Adam Vaughan really at the protest to hear both sides of the debate? Or is he actually against Bill C-51?
