Oakville mayor Rob Burton has stirred up a hornet’s nest after taking to twitter recently to question Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s use of private security. Here’s what he fired off into the twitterverse:
Harper uses Canadian veterans for additional campaign security, along with the usual RCMP officers that are already assigned to the country’s leader.
Many members of the Conservative Party have responded with anger. Many have criticized Burton for likening Stephen Harper to Adolf Hitler or Benito Mussolini, and military vets to the dictators’ respective paramilitary forces.
Mayor Burton has since apologized.
