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.”
