I live near Aisa Craig, Ontario. On Moday, I received a flyer in the mail from my MP, Bev Shipley.
One side of the page was pure electioneering. It even had the phrase ‘We’re better off with Harper’ and outlined three key points of his government’s focus. The fact that I received it in Monday’s mail made me suspect it had been paid for with the public purse through Parliamentary mailings. I sent an email off to Bev and have had no reply disputing this fact.
If this same practice has been carried out in the rest of the Conservative ridings, it would mean that the Conservatives have been paying for a large part of their campaign literature with our money.
John Diefenbaker once stated, “Democracy gives us the right to be wrong: not to do wrong.” This is wrong.
