MP failing in his job to northwestern B.C. constituents

NDP MP Nathan Cullen seems only to act for and with special interest groups

Dear Sir:

Your April 27, 2013 editorial on the special federal representative that supposedly is to clear turbulent waters of unextinguished aboriginal rights begs to ask the question, what about the other “half” of  citizens of this riding: Is anyone coming to clear our “turbulent waters”?

Is the federal government by this appointment telling us that we are or were inadequately and unequally represented?

If this is true than in my opinion Skeena Bulkley Valley NDP MP Nathan Cullen, who thinks his party is a government in waiting, missed the opportunity in past eight years to work for all the people of this riding.

Had he done so honestly we could have had better positive prospects for everyone concerned.

Sadly, jobs and economics of this riding were not his political priority.

He chooses to work for and with self interests groups only.  He also may have to live for the rest of his term in this special representative shadow.

Leon Dumstrey-Soos,

Kitimat B.C.
