LETTER: Is Ronna-Rae Leonard cutting her constituents short?

Dear editor,

I see that our MLA, Ronna-Rae Leonard has opened her constituency office. It has been announced that they will be open from 10 a.m.-noon and 1–3 p.m. Mondays and Tuesdays and then from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. on Wednesdays and Thursdays. That is a total of 18 hours per week.

Our previous MLA’s office was open 40 – 45 hours per week. I contacted all of the constituency offices in the province and of the 79 who responded, the average that they are open is 29.5 hours per week. Why are we being shortchanged by more than one third compared to the access to services that constituents in other ridings enjoy?
