Spurned by local politico

Member of Parliament declines to comment on questions of pipeline implications.

Dear editor,

I recently contacted Member of Parliament John Duncan’s office in Campbell River, by telephone.

Among complaints about the performance of the Harper Conservative government I asked Mr. Duncan to comment on the Chinese situation, in particular the espionage that occurred in the U.S. just this last June and the proposed pipeline that will assist the Chinese in having a steady and secure source of fossil fuel for its people and its very large military.

After four or five voicemails I was kindly told by Mr. Duncan himself, by telephone, not to contact his office by telephone anymore and he also requested that I do not visit his office.

Why didn’t he just answer a few important questions or make a few comments on my concerns?
