MP blasted for gun registry vote

Open Letter to Nathan Cullen, Skeena-Bulkley MP:

Dear sir,

Just when one thinks perhaps one can trust an elected official to vote the way his constituents direct, especially one who has said all along he will, he then hasn’t got the guts to do so.

He has no business in pretending he is for his riding. He has betrayed himself and his constituents.

As the Conservatives had the majority anyway to pass the bill, how stupid are you and your party to fly in the face of what your ridings wanted you to vote?

The only thing you accomplished was to show us you didn’t have the guts to do the right thing.

At your last victory celebration in Kitimat you shook my hand and committed to doing away with this registry, yet you became just another  politician and toed the “party” line.

Then make up garbage to cover yourself.

Well, with this voter it won’t fly.

With the Enbridge thing coming up it is obvious you cannot be trusted. It is much too important to commit to someone who flip flops like a fish out of water.

When will you do the right thing and resign?

Ben Christie,

Kitimat.
