Keeping promises a good thing

News Nov 22, 2006 Flamborough Review

Dianne Cornish wants the women of Flamborough to get a timely clarification about Promise Keepers, an organization Conservative candidate David Sweet belonged to for a while.

While Peter Greenberg is wrong in calling it an ultra right-wing religious organization, its very name, Promise Keepers, let's us know it has nothing to do with any stripe of Canadian Liberal.

All it tries to do is hold men to keeping the promises they make to their wives and children and any extended family members they are lucky enough to have. It had a male-only membership, because males were the ones, on the whole, who were behaving badly. Which, I'm sure, the women of Flamborough would not completely disagree with.

The pep talks haranguing these male slobs tried to get them to see themselves as leaders and responsible for the happiness and well-being of those around them. In short, to get them off the La-Z-boy and charged up. It is not in the least inimical to strong, independent women. Everyone wants promises made to them kept.

Real ultra right-wing organizations originating in the United States, like Wal-Mart, are lamentably popular with Canadians of all political stripes and that store is somewhere I have never and would never shop, due to its anti-union stance.
