The Tory MP for Nanaimo-Alberni MP explains why he won't meet with local representatives from KAIROS:
Nanaimo-Alberni MP James Lunney says he won't be bullied into meeting a church group upset about federal funding cuts to international aid organization KAIROS.
"The message is, don't try to intimidate your MP," he said.
Context is important: the Parksville-Qualicum chapter (is that the right term?) of KAIROS has asked repeatedly for a meeting with their MP. Their "bullying" has consisted entirely of phoning that MP's office and, perhaps, sending him emails.
