I was horrified by letter demeaning Claire Trevena

Maybe it’s time for you to write to the Speaker’s Office with your complaint and outrage

Re: “Why is this allowed?” – Sept. 12 edition of Campbell River Mirror

I’d like to submit this response to the above-mentioned article.

In response to “Why is this allowed?” by Judy Campbell, I wish first of all to let Campbell River readers know that there are a few Judy Campbells in town.

I was horrified to see my name attached to a letter demeaning Claire Trevena, our hard-working MLA.

There’s a good explanation of the policy of our government by Dan MacLennan in the September 7th edition of the Courier Islander.

It seems that it’s common practice for spouses to attend certain conferences on trips arranged by the Speaker’s Office.

Ms. Trevena isn’t a member of the party in power in Victoria and  I’ve certainly never noticed any “sense of entitlement” in the manner in which she conducts herself as our MLA.  She’s usually busy being responsive to the needs and concerns of her constituents.

I consider “the other Judy Campbell” to be playing party politics here and would assume she’s not a member of the NDP Party.

By the way Ms. Campbell, Claire Trevena has explained this issue thoroughly a number of times. Maybe it’s time for you to write to the Speaker’s Office with your complaint and outrage.

Somehow I don’t see that happening.
