IN MY OPIN­ION

Cape Breton Post - - FRONT PAGE - Ed McNeil, Let­ters,

It is time to move on and start gov­ern­ing this prov­ince.

There has been a lot of dis­cus­sion over the last two weeks about our MLAs’ ex­pense ac­counts, and rightly so. It is quite ob­vi­ous to me that this has been go­ing on for a long time, and no doubt those in power were looking the other way.

This by no means makes the prac­tice right. If the MLAs step up to the plate, pay back what they owe, and see to it that rules are put into place so this will never hap­pen again, that would be fine with me.

It is time to move on and start gov­ern­ing this prov­ince.

I won­der how many of our tax dol­lars are go­ing out to op­er­ate CBC Hal­i­fax. Maybe salaries and ex­penses there should be posted on­line since it is a gov­ern­ment-op­er­ated or­ga­ni­za­tion. Fair is Fair.
