The Attack of Liberal candidate for Banff-Airdrie, Marlo Raynolds

Posted on November 26, 2014

Statement in the House

Mr. Speaker, as MPs, privilege protects what we say here. It is critical that we all use that significant power responsibly and are careful not to ruin reputations with baseless slander.

Last week, the Conservative members for Banff-Airdrie,Peace River, and even the Minister of Employment and Social Development all attacked the Liberal candidate for Banff-Airdrie, Marlo Raynolds, for something he did not actually say. The comments had been broadcast by Sun News but it turns out that had been fed to it by a young Conservative spy. We now know the member of the public who did make the comments voted Conservative in the last election but showed honesty and came clean. The member for Calgary Centre-North even went so far as to mock Marlo online for denying it was his voice on the tape.

Marlo Raynolds is an honourable man with an exemplary reputation and is owed an apology by all of these MPs. Sun News has published a full retraction today. Do these members have the decency to do the same? Will they apologize for misleading the House?

Tryon Realignment Project a Disappointment

Posted on November 21, 2014

For Immediate Release

HUNTER RIVER – Malpeque MP and Liberal Public Safety Critic, Wayne Easter, is disappointed by the poor planning of the new highway realignment project in Tryon.

“It appears the safety concerns expressed by those in the community, the owners, and parents and families of children who attend the provincially licensed Early Learning Centre, Merry Pop-Ins Childcare Centre, have gone unheard.”

Easter questions the wisdom of designing an arterial highway, the sole purpose which is to bypass communities for the safe and efficient transport of goods and people, on the doorsteps of an Early Learning Centre where vehicles with children in them enter and exit daily.

“It is my hope that the provincial government can alleviate the safety concerns of those in the area with short term measures such as a reduced speed zone, flashing lights, and RCMP patrols; and accommodate the needs of rural Islanders by providing a more logical and safer accommodation for the patrons of Merry Pop-Ins Childcare Centre.”
