Tone at the top

Conservative Dean Del Mastro's interaction with Peterborough residents gets some attention:

"Canadian Conservatives Ignore, Censor, Bully and Threaten Critics."
"Call for Election Canada guidelines for Social Media."

Why would a Conservative candidate think that a Facebook page in his name can entertain interaction with citizens in this manner? Amazing stuff. While people may think it's small ball, and that seems to be the way Del Mastro is reacting to it, it's a part of the political climate that's been created in this country over the last few years. Kudos to the citizens of Peterborough who are saying enough is enough.
