After McKay, why bother voting?

Such antics make parliamentarians look like overpaid hooligans and Parliament itself a bad joke.

Editor, The News:

When we see and hear the blatant lies put forth in Parliament by members such as our Minister of National Defence Peter McKay about his use of search and rescue helicopters and their crews to transport him from his fishing vacation, is it any wonder many Canadians don’t bother voting? Such antics make parliamentarians look like overpaid hooligans and Parliament itself a bad joke. Why should we waste our time voting, and do we really have to pay for it? And this is not an isolated instance.
