'You can vote us out of office'

Industry Minister Tony Clement runs into some protesters at York.

“Parliament is coming back in March,” Clement told the protestors. “We are in the midst of consulting with the people of Canada about their issues and concerns, primarily about the economy. So, there is no end of democracy. That is a fallacy”…

“We have a government that is focused on the economy, focused on safer streets and focused on research and development,” Clement said. “If you don’t agree with that, which is your right, then you can vote us out of office. That’s democracy.”
