To the Editor:
At its best, politics is a wacky business. In my life in Thompson, I have witnessed the wolves of her own party attack the late honourable Bev Desjarlais for her honest position, and after she was removed by Jack Layton from the NDP caucus, she persevered.
The honourable Steve Ashton served this community and advocated for the University College of the North campus in our city. Also, as Mr. Ashton promised, hundreds of millions were diverted to improve the highways such as Provincial Trunk Highway 6, Provincial Trunk Highway 391 and Provincial Trunk Highway 10 between The Pas and Flin Flon, Manitoba.
However, it pains me to see Mr. Ashton still clinging to power. And to see the soon-to-be-former Member of Parliament field her assistant as the next Member of the Legislative Assembly for Thompson.
Mr. Kelly Bindle was elected to replace the Ashton Dynasty, so would your “clique” please take a bow and leave the political arena gracefully?
With all due respect for Mr. Ashton, the people have made a choice. Time to move on.
