No Representatives

MP James Lunney is living in the Dark Ages and hiding in his back room.

MP James Lunney is living in the Dark Ages and hiding in his back room.

MLA Michelle Stilwell is off preparing for the ParaPan Am Games and Coun. Al Grier is living in No-ville. Who is representing us?

As for Lunney, I’d like him to do the job we hired him to do, which includes, at least to me, dealing with present-day problems and preparing us for the future.

With his medieval thinking, the announcement that he won’t be running again and leaving the Conservative caucus, Lunney is mailing it in, literally. The last two mailers I received from him were a joke, bad copies of conservative literature with party affiliations deleted out.

He should resign.

Stilwell has every right to compete, but as our representative, shouldn’t she be doing it full time? It’s one thing to spend time exercising, but to compete on an International level takes far more time and effort and that’s time away from us. Stilwell was already training for a competition in Victoria this past weekend and then another one in Edmonton (somewhere not in B.C.) in July.

If Stilwell still has that competitive fire, then she should be pursuing it and not giving us a part-time MLA.

Finally, Grier, a man from no, no, no, no, no, yes, no, no, no, no land. Other than closing the community gardens with a road going nowhere, what is he for?
