I am still not sure what is meant by this term but, I can tell you I have been out and about since the beginning of July and the only BBQ I attended was our own SDSG Constituency Picnic. I have attended events throughout the riding including seven Canada Day celebrations, the Highland Games, numerous Fairs, sports tournaments, and many other events.

As a matter of fact, much has been said and written to me about this topic by the constituents in Stormont, Dundas, and South Glengarry. My experience as an MP over the past 9 years convinces me that the vast number of constituents in SD&SG are honest, hardworking and very politically informed. That is why many of you are so disappointed with recent developments in Canada's Senate.
