After posting Tweets concerning the Conservatives’ decision to hire veterans as extra security during campaigning, Oakville mayor Rob Burton has apologized to any veterans he may have offended over the weekend.
Burton, however, will not apologize to the Conservatives.
He had tweeted that using veterans as security detail during campaigning was comparable to actions done by the Nazis and Mussolini back in the Second World War, but said he was more questioning the party’s actions to use private security.
Should the mayor resign for his comments? Were Mayor Burton’s tweets taken out of context?
