MANY thanks to Mr. Wark for his informative article (see below) about what is happening in our town with one of the most decent politicians in our province, country, and perhaps in the world.
Bambi will name Mr. Bruce Phinney.
Mr. Phinney is far from being perfect because he is a human being.
However, this being said, one of his BEST qualities is his honesty.
He tells the truth as it is. How many of us still speak our mind in such a candid way?
Indeed, with all due respect to all our politicians in town, including our MLA (a former town councillor), Mr. Phinney was the only elected official who stood up to defend Bambi’s spouse.
Ironically, Mr. Phinney is now being accused (for the second time) in a similar way.
In Bambi’s non-expert citizen opinion, this way is all about silencing. It has nothing to do with politeness.
Since when a town councillor and a citizen cannot criticize town staff or provincial politicians?
When will we have accountability in our town?
When will our town truly respects its citizens, even those who are not part of the elite?
Is there any hope?
