Fool me twice, Mr.Bussiére? I think not

The Editor,

Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.

Voters in the provincial riding of Gatineau who voted for Robert Bussiére in the last election should consider this wisdom when deciding how to vote. Bussiére was well known in the region, and his track record indicated he would work for and represent all constituents.

Unfortunately, it is not uncommon that as soon as members enter the provincial or federal legislatures, they become more like meek, silent Grade 1 students than representatives of their constituents. Bussiére has been an outstanding student – four years of doing as premier François Legault has told him – don’t speak unless spoken to and keep a low profile. Or better still, just disappear.
