Etobicoke-Lakeshore sign now

Michael Grant Ignatieff, M.P.

In good faith, the constituents of the federal riding of Etobicoke-Lakeshore elected you as their member of Parliament in the 2006 general election, on your assurance that you would take up residence within our community. You have not.

You stated, in the March 4 Toronto Star, Page A14, article entitled "Ignatieff trying to place himself":

"If I'm feeling that this is holding me back and if voters feel this is a major issue, of course I'm going to live in the riding.... The thing that's holding me back is I've asked my wife to make one move already and asking her to make a second move in a year is just a bridge too far."

While we do understand that moving once in one year, let alone twice, can be trying, we beg to differ that it is as unreasonable, or "a bridge too far", as you would suggest. Many others have done so, and for far lesser reasons than a major career change. As well, it is difficult to believe that you did not have the foresight to anticipate this situation when you considered entering political life.

We feel this is a major issue.

In general, good governance requires some stake or interest in the community, by those who govern. By your decision not to reside in Etobicoke-Lakeshore, it does seem you do not care about your constituency, and thus cannnot properly represent us.

We therefore, with all due respect, request that you either decide to take up residence within the riding of Etobicioke-Lakeshore before the next election, or seek re-election in the riding you currently live in, that a resident member of this community may better serve.
