CFN – Social media and politics are a strange mix; sort of like Tequila and Gold cards. In today’s age though sometimes what you type can show a lot more than a prudent young politician might want to be displaying.
Young Colin Munro of South Glengarry has kicked off his run for council by joining a facebook hate group yonder over in South Stormont.
Asked if he was aware via facebook chat he typed:
Mr. Munro then took a shot at me over my police charges which phone records in a production order from Bell Telephone have shown I never made.
Colin refused to confirm if he had ever actually read The South Stormont News which he is apparently now boycotting.
Mr. Munro came up to me at the Provincial All Candidates debate and introduced himself in a kinda of threatening manner as well.
Mr. Munro also attacked me on twitter before being blocked.
This sadly happens a lot in Eastern Ontario. The ugliness and ignorance of certain folks gets bred down and with it comes attitudes like Mr. Munro’s. It’s kind of scary.
What do you think CFN viewers and those of you in South Glengarry? Do you think someone with these attitudes should be elected to public office to serve? You can post your comments below.
