Remove Sen. Lynn Beyak from the senate now

This petition had 166 supporters

Sen. Lynn Beyak is an unapologetic racist and needs to be removed from the senate immediately. That she has been tolerated at all proves that, in Ottawa, there are precious few people bothered by blatant racism. This cannot be allowed to continue. Canada is not about bigotry and ignorance. 

Once Beyak is removed, there needs to be a complete overhaul of the rules regarding the appointment and dismissal of a senators from the senate. Hers is not simply a differing viewpoint and this not a free speech issue. It's a hate speech issue.

Beyak's presence in it only underscores the cronyism that now defines the Canadian senate. We don't need it as it serves no real purpose. However, if we're going to continue to waste millions on it every year, we should at least have some say in who is awarded these do-nothing "jobs". 

Read more about this disgusting situation below and then please share this petition far and wide.
