The explanation of the FIPA agreement by MP John Duncan sure leads one on to think that our local representative has a real handle on this file.
Wow, and the opposition has a full 21 days for an opportunity to debate the treaty.
On the facing page to this story, are two letters from Valley residents, with extreme concerns with respect to the lack of studies, reports, thoughtful discourse or debate, by the actions of the Conservative Party of Canada, and what appears to be a heavy-handed approach to democracy.
Here is your challenge, Mr. Duncan.
Can you find the time to call a town hall meeting, to invite your constituents who actually pay your wages, to clear the mud so to speak, on what appears to be a long and slippery slope into a trade deal that will have far-reaching consequences for our grandchildren? Should we not get this right?
Clearly there are many voters out here, myself included, that are not convinced that the best interests of our country and the people who will inherit it, are being met. The fact is, Mr. Duncan, this is the very least you can do.
Lastly, when I shared my intention to write this letter with friends, they all said, “Good luck; John Duncan will be a no-show,” so here is an opportunity for you to prove them wrong.
