Legitimate Political Questions

The Star emailed every Quebec MP in the NDP caucus

a short questionnaire

soliciting their opinions on the political future of the province

and whether they had changed over time

They were asked if they had ever held a membership in another political party at the provincial or federal level

That's between them, the party and Elections and Revenue Canada

how they voted in the Quebec referendums,

That's between them and the ballot box

whether they ever cast a ballot for the Bloc Québécois

That's both too much and too little to ask about; why not provincial parties?

and whether they considered themselves federalists, sovereigntists or believed another term would best describe their beliefs

A perfectly fair question.
