Threats undermine democracy

Over the weekend, Nadine Wellwood, the People’s Party of Canada (PPC) candidate for Banff-Airdrie, was the recipient of a threatening letter claiming to be from the left-wing-activist group ANTIFA (the letter’s contents can be read in the Cochrane Eagle’s front page story).

In the letter, the writer tells Wellwood she must reconsider running for a “Nazi Party” if she doesn’t want to attract the interest of ANTIFA. The threat, which indicates there is someone watching Wellwood, is obviously meant to intimidate her into dropping out of the race, or at the very least change the party she is representing.
