Saskatchewan Party Candidate has Ethical Problems

It is not too often that I find myself agreeing with Murry Mandryk but in his column today he made some interesting points about the Saskatchewan Party Candidate Christine Tell.

Here are some tidbits:

So it very much comes down to an ethical decision. And Tell -- who, if elected to a Brad Wall government would stand a pretty good chance as a woman and a Regina MLA of making cabinet -- has made some questionable ethical decisions.

By blaming Johnston, Tell added to the bad judgment she already demonstrated by deciding not to take a leave of absence.

And such bad judgment calls are sometimes a lot more harmful to a candidate than anything else.

This all stems from the problem that she is a police officer that was suspended, put on probation and then attacked the police force for being "political"

Does this sound like a person that you want as your MLA?

me neither.
