No more excuses
“I didn’t know.” “Nobody told me.” “I forgot.”
The excuses you would expect to hear from a four-year-old caught with their hand in the cookie jar.
Instead, these are the excuses we have been hearing lately from our esteemed premier and his ministers, the very people who have been entrusted with governing our province for the next four years. The people who made all kinds of promises during the election campaign, only to toss them aside when they achieved their goal.
No, Mr. Premier you can’t use the “I didn’t know things were so bad” argument; every thinking person in the province had a pretty good idea how bad things really were.
It is time for this government to start listening to the people who elected them and addressing our problems in a more responsible manner.
If you want to save money in government, ask the people who actually do the work of government. They can identify many areas where money is misspent and wasted on a daily basis.
Yes, we know sacrifices have to be made if we are to get out of this financial crisis but don’t try to solve all our problems on the backs of low income families, seniors and the younger generation. Most of all, start governing with honesty and integrity (words you can look up in any dictionary or on your iPhone); you owe the people of this province at least that much.
