ride on the hay wagon at Heritage Park in 2014 Chilliwack Fair.
people is nothing new for for trying to deal with Mark Strahl. In my opinion
he's one of the worst MP's to represent the area's of B.C. I have lived and
In my opinion it is not only "Online" Mark has a problem
with but letters and emails as well. If you try to contact him with your
questions, remarks and thoughts it had better be in his line of thinking or
you will be ignored. I must admit that I have not recently tried to contact
him as I have no use for a politician who does not represent his
constituents even when he may not agree with them. His job is to represent
the public within his jurisdiction to listen and give them representation in
Three times in the past, and earlier in Marks much questionable appointment
as Chilliwacks MP, I tried to question our Conservative Government through
Mark and two letters and an email were never responded to. I agree one
contact was somewhat critical of a Conservative decision but two more
contacts were questions to further understand Conservative policy and
idea's. I did on one occasion get to question him in person and he suggested
he had to do some research on my question and then suggested I put it in
writing for follow up. That was over two years ago and still no reply.
It is not only myself that Mark has either avoided or not stood up for but
we all remember the time Mark thought Veterans were not worth the time and
effort to stand up for them. He learned a lesson there.
I think until Mark can be replaced by someone who truly wants to represent
the people of Chilliwack, Mark will continue to avoid his responsibilities.
The time for people to speak up and be heard will be after a Conservative
Leader is chosen and I for one will be asking for an MP who is willing to
represent his constituents.
