The law should apply equally to all, including Red Deer politicians

The mayor and city council failed to uphold any minimal standard of conduct for it members by allowing Coun. Paul Harris to remain on council even though he was disqualified by Sections 174 and 175 of the Municipal Government Act.

The mayor and city council failed to uphold any minimal standard of conduct for it members by allowing Coun. Paul Harris to remain on council even though he was disqualified by Sections 174 and 175 of the Municipal Government Act.

Then we see in the April 22 Advocate, Harris is given ample opportunity to lambast the federal government’s budget, while he was caught red handed in not paying his taxes on time.

Are laws only meant for the average citizen? Not for a privileged member of Red Deer city council? Is this why every year the city of Red Deer takes a lane out of commission in front of his business?

And some wonder why politicians are held in such great contempt.
