Re: Nanaimo-Alberni MP James Lunney’s recently-distributed newsletter for the summer of 2015.
There may be reference to God in our national anthem, but we do not live in a theocracy. Elected representatives who are influenced solely by religious conscience or political caucus rather than representing their constituents should declare their allegiance at every critical juncture.
Furthermore, as a Canadian citizen and taxpayer, I resent the (soon-to-be-retired) Lunney using a publicly-funded newsletter as a bully pulpit to carry on a personal conflict with those who question his ulterior motives and take issue with his behaviour.
The latest newsletter pales in comparison to one several years ago that chastised mere mortals for ascending to the heavens through space exploration.
The simple fact that Lunney is not running for re-election, even if it is due to new pension contribution requirements, is proof enough of the existence of a god.
