A contrast of two politicians

I've been meaning to write this since I heard that Chuck Cadman has passed. Mr. Cadman is a politician but a relunctant (and accidental) one. He's an everyday man who was forced into politics because of circumtances. Even since he was elected, he has been steadfastly hard working, honest, and accountable to the people who elected him. Mr. Cadman was thrust into the politician arena when his son was killed in a sensless crime; a victim of young offenders. He decided to campaign for changes to the current Young Offenders Act to introduce tougher penalties. He's a shining example of what an elected official is supposed to be.

Mr. Gurmant Grewal, on the other hand, seems to be the exact opposite. Politics for him seems to be a means to milk the public. He's a shining example of what's wrong with our current political system with questionable ethics and integrity. It's too bad that we don't have recall legislation that would allow the public to recall politicians who are self-serving.

Hear hear!

Speaking of recalling Grewal, I wouldn't mind recalling Belinda Stronach while we're at it!

We will have to recall more than 3/4 of the elected folks!!!

Where else but in Canada can you get a potential Opposition party who are dedicated to the breakup of the country?

We Canadians are sure a strange breed.
