I congratulate Wayne Marston on his election as MP for Hamilton East – Stoney Creek. Wayne has done a great job as Trustee for Ward 5 during the past five years and I look forward to his work on behalf of Hamilton East – Stoney Creek as our new MP.
Reminds me of a story from my basic training.
We were digging trenchs for days in the Meaford. One of the guys in my hole decided that he would speak his mind and point out that digging deep trenchs made no sense as they were no longer used in modern warfare. To which the Sergeant replied “get digging, you willl need this skill when Mel calls” referring of course to Mel Lastman, mayor of Toronto calling in the army to shovel snow.
The Spectator took 2 days from Bourque’s posting to cover the story. I apologize to the Spec for the mistake.
Second, the Spec does not get the same freedom that us bloggers get to just write any old thing. They have to check facts and verify sources prior to publication. Even then they have to make sure that dotted the i’s and crossed the t’s on the story. They have been doing a good job of Valeri’s poor ethics.
