"Campaign Improprieties" and "Business as Usual"

In today's editorial, Spec editor Robert Howard writes:

Leadership campaign improprieties, coupled with the Liberal party's lack of response, reinforce deep public cynicism that it's the same-old Liberals doing the same-old shenanigans: business as usual.

Why is it so easy for the Spectator editors to draw the obvious conclusion about the federal Liberal Party, but can't seem to make the same connection when it comes to Hamilton's own Mayor, Larry Di Ianni, who is also guilty of "campaign improprieties" and tried to avoid responsibility for the charges against him until a private citizen forced the issue?

Business as usual, indeed.

Ryan McGreal, the editor of Raise the Hammer, lives in Hamilton with his family and works as a programmer, writer and consultant. Ryan volunteers with Hamilton Light Rail, a citizen group dedicated to bringing light rail transit to Hamilton. Ryan wrote a city affairs column in Hamilton Magazine, and several of his articles have been published in the Hamilton Spectator. His articles have also been published in The Walrus, HuffPost and Behind the Numbers. He maintains a personal website, has been known to share passing thoughts on Twitter and Facebook, and posts the occasional cat photo on Instagram.

Um, Ryan in case you haven't noticed, the Hamilton Spectator is part of the problem, not the solution. Ask Andrew Dreshel.
