Gazebo Tony’s fall from grace

The Welland Tribune - - Opinion -

RE: TONY CLE­MENT BOOTED FROM CON­SER­VA­TIVE CAU­CUS AMID AL­LE­GA­TIONS OF SEX­UAL IM­PRO­PRI­ETY, NOV. 7

It’s al­most funny. Tony Cle­ment threw $50 mil­lion of our tax­payer dol­lars around var­i­ous rid­ings, in­clud­ing his Muskoka rid­ing, seven or eight years ago as part of the G8 Le­gacy In­fra­struc­ture spend­ing; award­ing his bud­dies with lots of dough to spruce up Huntsville and other sites.

He claimed in Par­lia­ment that it was “in­vest­ment in in­fra­struc­ture to re­duce bor­der con­ges­tion.” Yup, a few new gaze­bos in Muskoka would cer­tainly re­duce traf­fic at the Peace Bridge in Fort Erie.

Re­sponse from Muskoka vot­ers and other Cana­di­ans? Yawn.

Now, a re­ally im­mensely stupid idiocy in­volv­ing sex, and the whole coun­try goes nuts.

I’m not sad to see Gazebo Tony’s po­lit­i­cal as­pi­ra­tions go down in flames, but I would have much pre­ferred it to be the re­sult of throw­ing our tax­payer dol­lars around Muskoka.
