Interesting statements

Resident questions comments made by MP about the economy

On May 21, I received a mailed, large, taxpayer-paid pamphlet from MP Colin Mayes. It said, “As a result of our government’s economic action plan, Canada is doing well – very well.”

However on May 22, in his regular Morning Star column, Mr. Mayes wrote about, “low economic growth figures domestically” and spoke of “the lagging economy,” calling today, “a time of recession.”

Would Mr. Mayes please reconcile these two statements for his readership.

Particularly in light of the May 22 news article that he is being monitored by the prime minister’s office.
