Tony Van Bynen, the freshly minted 69 year old Liberal candidate for Newmarket-Aurora and our next MP, continues to block me from reading his Tweets.
I have tweeted the Liberal Party (@liberal_party) to ask if that’s OK and what’s going to happen when, in 12 weeks time, he is my MP.
Once he is comfortably settled in Ottawa will he respond to my emails on public policy issues or will he still block me?
If I want to talk to him about, say, a ban on handguns or the climate emergency or income inequality or any one of a thousand other issues will he silently ignore me?
Or will he engage with the argument?
Tony Van Bynen's Liberal Campaign Team tells us he needs volunteers
“to help with the crucial task of connecting with our voters at the door”.
I am left wondering if Tony will be knocking on my door to connect with me.
