Concern for new MP
To the Editor,
Re: Schmale MP for HKLB.
Once again, Haliburton County has chosen another Conservative MP. Given that we now have a
majority Liberal government, Mr. Schmale will occupy the back benches of a very resentful
opposition party, he will be paid a handsome salary and he will have help with his living expenses,
during his time in Ottawa. Great gig.
The question is: will he earn that money and speak for his constituents?
When our new prime minister presents a bill in the House of Commons, Mr. Schmale will be directed
to vote against any and all legislation, including legislation that may improve the lives of Canadians!
We live in hope that Mr. Schmale will ask the opinion of his constituents. Perhaps he will even answer
our questions, with an open mind and in a timely manner. Maybe, just maybe, he might periodically
hold town hall meetings and ask questions. Now isn’t that an original idea!
Always remember, his constituents pay his salary and we have the right to hold him to account.
