LETTERS: MP should stop using social media

It appears Ms. Findlay has a problem with Twitter in particular.


It is very obvious from reading the Peace Arch News the past two weeks that MP Kerry-Lynne Findlay has a problem using social media.

Last week in PAN it was revealed she made critical and ill-advised remarks on social media about the soon-to-be leader of her political party.

This week, she is reported to have retweeted an edited two-minute clip regarding Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland interviewing a right-wing conspiracy theorist in 2009, which Ms. Findlay has now apologised for and has deleted the tweet. It appears Ms Findlay has a problem with Twitter in particular.

I have three suggestions to resolve Ms Findlay’s problem. First, stop using social media. Second, think before she tweets. Third, resign her position as Member of Parliament.

Then at least she will not embarrass the good people in this constituency who voted for her.

Ian Routledge, White Rock
