We Must Be Getting Under His Skin

Our persistence must be paying off. After many posts about how David Sweet has done nothing for our community (which can be found here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here), David is responding through a series of e-mails and a mail-out entitled "Working For You"

We check the traffic to our site frequently and while our number of visitors has been growing over the past few months, we have noticed one persistent ISP address coming to this site. It's none other than David Sweet's office. It would appear that Doug Brown and the boys down at Sweet's constituency office have been checking in on us almost daily - even during our long absences.

So, when we say "David Sweet has f*ck all for our community" they take that seriously and have responded. If you check out David Sweet's website you'll notice new section on his site called "Working For You" with a story written by David (probably by one of his staffers, but we're willing to give him the benefit of the doubt here). In it you'll notice that David has been out and about in the community:

We welcomed the arrival of summer with the Canada Day long weekend. It was my pleasure to attend the 150th anniversary of Freelton as well as so many Canada Day events throughout the area – from the Rotary pancake breakfast in Dundas to parades and events in Lynden, Troy, Greensville and Flamborough. And ending the day in grand Canadian style at the fireworks in Ancaster.

Well, that's cute and all, but it's in the wrong place since it sits under the heading "Working For You". Someone should tell David that showing up an community events isn't working for us - it's working for himself. That seems to be something that flies right over David's head.

Where are the results that David promises last election?

Because we know that you read this David, we have to ask that you actually start working for us. Cheap photo-ops won't cut it.

David's Swanky Night On The Town

It's been a while since we've posted but that's not really our fault.

Seriously, it really isn't.

We feel it's David's fault. If your MP sits around and does nothing for his or her riding, there really isn't much to write about, is there? Sorry, go blame David. We certainly do.

So, what has David been up to? Has he been supporting our farmers in Flamborough? Perhaps he's busy turning Cootes Paradise into a national park, like he said he would? Has the harbour front clean-up gotten underway?

Well, no - of course not!

David's been busy holding a swanky fundraiser with Public Safety Minister Stockwell Day.

Yes, that's right. When our riding goes neglected all David Sweet can manage to do is hold a fundraiser with his buddies at a high-class country club. That's getting results for people, right David?
