Letter to the editor: MP’s newsletter should inform
To the Editor,
Upon receiving a newsletter from Jamie Schmale, our MP for Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock, this is what I would say to him in response:
“Mr. Schmale, send me a non-partisan piece of news. Tell me what you are doing to help benefit my community, not a smear campaign using taxpayers’ dollars to bash Prime Minister Trudeau and the Liberals while pushing Ford’s Conservative ‘government for the people’ agenda that cut millions of dollars needed for children, the vulnerable, students, teachers, the environment, TVO, and more.
Show some backbone. Address the outcry against these cuts. Stop painting a picture of a healthy status quo, with you smiling in photo ops alongside hard-working Ontarians in an attempt to mask your abject failure to represent our disdain in Parliament.
When you can do that, then send me a newsletter. I’ll be happy to help pay for it. Right now, however, you need to know that by actively pushing the Ford/Scheer Conservative agenda at my expense and the tax dollars of all your constituents, you have proven without a doubt, that you are part of the problem not the solution.”
