Brownface - what now?

There are no words to describe the bombshell that dropped when it was revealed how Justin Trudeau was out of line with his repeated use of blackface/brownface depictions.

No two ways about it. 

How he and the Liberal hierarchy work things out remains to be seen. In the meantime, there is still an election on, and the electorate will decide his and the party’s fate. We here in Kelowna-Lake Country will also have that opportunity.

Regardless of how things will work out at the macro level, here at the micro level, in our constituency, in asking the question “Who will do best by us in Ottawa?” my vote still rests firmly with Stephen Fuhr. 

Since being elected for the first time in 2015, he has worked tirelessly for constituents, on an individual and wider level.

This has included research funds for UBCO, assistance with Rails to Trails, water improvement in both Kelowna and West Kelowna, as well as countless individual cases handled by his office. 

Due to his persistence, a number of higher level Liberal meetings were held here, a boon to our conference and tourism business.

He is known to be persistent and to work across party lines to build relationships. He has gained a vast amount of expertise and experience, and we would do well to return him to Ottawa, regardless of which party ends up governing.
