In the article, Mr. Orser complains about being berated in this manner:
“If it’s somebody from Ward 4, I’m glad to help them and I’m glad to take the hits,” he said. “But when you’re trying to do your job this really wears you down.”Apologies, but I'm not sure how this constitutes "helping" a constituent, and I don't see how this is remotely connected to a city councillor dong his job. Engaging in the kind of online behaviors that would prompt me to ban my teenaged kids permanently from Facebook does not in any way constitute "doing his job." If I'm mistaken, I'd like to invite Mr. Orser to set the record straight in a comment here, in Twitter or on Facebook.
