LETTERS: A challenge to politicans to do their job

Justin Trudeau was chosen prime minister, not Jody Wilson-Raybould

To the Expositor:

Let’s just do our jobs!

I admit to negligence in not being absorbed into the recent cloud of controversy surrounding Jody Wilson-Raybould and to a lesser degree Jane Philpott. 

No one has yet mentioned how much money the PM was paying Ms. Wilson-Raybould for doing her job. But let me speculate that its more than the $15/hr. a McDonald’s employee earns working a busy lunch hour shift under pressure. 

It seems to me that Ms. Wilson-Raybould was asked to do a job, a well-paid job. And if she felt she couldn’t do that job she should quit and she did. Now, what’s all the fuss about?

Basic Island common sense says: You have to see the cow before you can milk it. In other words, Ms. Wilson-Raybould must have been fully aware of the responsibilities and requirements of the cabinet position before accepting it. That’s common sense. Understandably, that job comes with a certain amount of pressure as I’m sure the PM’s job has a certain amount of pressure. 

And he’s right. It’s all about team work. If you are not for him then you are against him. In the last election, Justin Trudeau was chosen PM, not Ms. Wilson-Raybould.
