Chong urged to quit Tory caucus

Dear edtior,
Recently, Brent Rathgeber, MP for Edmonton-St. Albert, resigned from the Conservative caucus on a matter of principle. In his words,“I could no longer stand by people who had morphed into something that he had gone to Ottawa to replace…”
Buried in the mountain of their own scandals, government business has ground to a halt. Everybody is talking about the Senate expense scandal. Meanwhile, our economy is being hollowed out by a tsunami of multinational corporate decisions to move good paying Canadian jobs to cheaper jurisdictions.
Look no further than the loss of 331 jobs at the A.O.Smith factory in Fergus.
Where is Welington-Halton Hills MP Michael Chong in all this mess. Does he represent his constituents or does he stand with the party whip? Is he our man in Ottawa or is he Harper’s man in the House of Commons?
I feel the people of Wellington-Halton Hills deserve an answer. Michael Chong should do the right thing and resign from the Conservative caucus and follow Rathgeber’s courageous lead in these most trying times. We deserve better than this.
Robert Sevigny, Hillsburgh
