Higher standard for politicians

Letters

I would expect someone who recently announced their intention to run for municipal council to be an advocate of following laws,  not breaking them.

I was  recently troubled by comments on Terrance Martin’s SIMRAC Facebook page.

Here is a quote:

“Every illegal ride that happens in a CRD park is a direct consequence of their policy.”

This quote is troubling to me. In my opinion this is no different than saying it is the government’s fault that people speed because the speed limits are too low,  or that it is okay for underaged people to drink alcohol because  you think the legal drinking age of 19 is too high.

A person running for political office should be held to a higher standard,  condemning  flagrant law breakers,  not blaming the government because he doesn’t agree with the policy that is in place.
