By-elections must be called!

We all know the issue. The Conservative Party of Canada has allegedly partaken in actions of voter supression. This is a very serious allegation, and I will accept the notion of innocent until proben guilty. As we stand it seems that only one individual, 23 year old Conservative staffer and professional ballot box tamperer Michael Sona; is responsible.
I don't know if there was any central coordination from Prime Minister Harper or his inner circle to engage in such actions. What I do know is that MPs and candidates from all three parties have claimed to be victims. That puts the results of all affected ridings into question. The Liberal Party of Canada has delivered a list of 27 ridings affected, however; there are reports that put the number as high as 34. It is imperative that all MPs representing these ridings accept that the validity of their election has now been called into question. That means Canadian democracy has been called into question. By-elections are must to correct this matter. And in the interest of democracy, they must be called immediately.
