question of the week

What can we expect from you John Weston?



It was ironic that on the day the Conservative government announced major cuts to Canada Post, we received a glossy newsletter from our MP John Weston — using his free postage service.

The newsletter was notable for two things — the lack of any true content and 11 pictures of John Weston.

While focus has been on urban door-to-door delivery, Canada Post is also looking to other ways to cut service. We have a real concern they will eye the closure of community outlets such as the excellent facility in Roberts Creek.

Should such closures be proposed, what can we expect from Weston? Will he oppose such negative moves or will he quietly accept his marching orders from the Prime Minister’s Office and try to rationalize the cuts.

If history is a guide, we know the answer with his illogical defence of the closing of the Department of Fisheries here on the Coast.

Paul Johnston, Roberts Creek
