Letter: Day can’t ‘phone in’ a massive town hall meeting

To the editor:

Can you believe the gall of Stockwell Day calling it a “town hall meeting.” (Capital News Feb. 18: Day to Reach Out and Touch Voters.)

He really enjoys telling us about all the meetings he attends.

If he really wants a town hall meeting, he should rent a large hall and face his constituents and answer questions about what he is not doing.

All you will get from this telephone fiasco are the usual canned answers.

It really is sad that he and all the other politicians appear to think we are stupid to swallow that nonsense.

Save your breath folks, because you won’t get any straight answers. 

Calling as many as 40000 people—really what a crock.
