Keddy Checks Cheques

South-Shore St Margaret's MP, Gerald Keddy, Wednesday issued a release calling the presence of a Conservative party logo on a public cheque "inappropriate". On September 19, Keddy appeared at Church Memorial Park to highlight funding for the Eleanor Pew Morris Memorial Rink. During the event, an oversized cheque that had the Conservative Party of Canada logo printed on it was used as a prop during a photo opportunity. Calling it an "unfortunate mistake", Keddy says the use of a party logo on a cheque representing public funds was inappropriate.
