People suck

25Jul08

The mayor of Port Coquitlam makes me really angry.

This man has plead guilty to assaulting his ex-girlfriend and her partner, but has refused to step down as mayor. This is bad enough on its own, but made worse because he claims to be a proponent of safer communities.

My vision of safer communities is one where no person gets violently assaulted by an ex-partner, where no one is attacked at their place of work. My safer community is not one where an assaulter has civic power or no accountability.

    It’s awful, isn’t it? The rest of the council in PoCo has asked him repeatedly to step down, and he just won’t budge. His curfew even includes a provision for him to go to council meetings. Yuck!
