Cheque it out!

A lovely photo of Phil trying to purchase votes.
Notice that he signed the cheque with his own name,
even though the money is from the government of Canada
and belongs to the taxpayers, not him.

Making the List

Phil McColeman has made the list! The list, that is, of MPs who handed out cheques with Conservative Party logos on them, when that money actually belongs to the taxpayers of Canada.

Granted this list is from a Liberal website, and this blog is non-partisan. But let's face it, the Liberals do have a good point here.

Cheques and Balances

So it looks like Phil isn't the only MP handing out oversize cheques in a pathetic attempt to buy our vote. The entire country is in an uproar over the fact that Conservative MPs are handing out giant cheques with their names on them. Let's look at the facts:

a) Canada is in a recession, and we do not have much money.
b) Stephen Harper wasted the budget surplus, giving Canada a structural deficit. That means that even when the recession ends, we will still have a deficit.
c) Phil McColeman, and his friends all over the country, are handing out giant cheques like we have money to waste.

If you live in Brant you've no doubt received several taxpayer-funded mailouts from Phil McColeman, bragging about all the spending he's doing. (Same thing if you check out his website).

It's utterly shameless. The money is not there to be spent. We already have an aging population that will put a huge financial strain on this country in a couple years. We don't need irresponsible MPs like Phil McColeman increasing the national debt by spending money that they don't have in a sad attempt to purchase votes.

Phil's Flag Flap Comes to an End

Apparently the riding of Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry has been proclaimed the most patriotic riding in Canada… or rather, the riding most willing to overlook their MP defacing the Canadian flag. Thank goodness that Brant didn't win that dubious title. Embarrassingly, we placed third.

There is still no excuse for using taxpayer dollars to deface flags with promotions for Conservative MPs. The flag is a proud symbol of our great country, not of partisan politics.
