Rob Anders: "Democracy is Petty"

Yeah, party members wanting open nominations. How petty of them.

The tumultuous history of the federal Conservative riding association in Calgary West continued this week with the Tory party’s national council apparently assuming control of the association board.

Most members of the Conservative riding board support Donna Kennedy-Glans, who wishes to challenge controversial incumbent MP Rob Anders in a nomination race. Riding association members were to be asked by the board this spring whether they wanted to attempt to hold another nomination race.

“When you have some people that are focused on what are fairly minuscule, petty issues to the distraction of that overall effort — they’re doing it to cause disruption to the party as a whole, for the council, for the member of Parliament,” Anders said Friday evening.

“You have to put that stuff to rest and move on.”
