Adding jobs here while taking elsewhere
Get ready folks – I believe an election is in the near future.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper is giving money away – this time to Canadians, usually it’s to other countries. More money for family allowance, but that will be clawed back when you do your income taxes next year.
Finally he is starting to listen to our veterans. First he laid off over 300 personnel in Charlottetown and now is hiring 20 permanent workers and 13 temporary workers (how long do the temps stay?). One additional case worker for all the veterans on P.E.I. and 11 employees to hire and train the above 34 staff. So when the others are trained, are these 11 finished?
But it sounds good — like throwing a few bread crumbs to the pigeons.
For all the veterans waiting for months to go through the system, you will have to wait a bit longer for the government said these positions ‘should’ – not will – ‘ be filled by March of 2016.’
The Minister of Veterans Affairs Erin O’Toole did not shed light on the pace or size of any future downsizing at the Charlottetown office.
Giving a few jobs here but still cutting from other departments – where do all these people find work, Mr. Harper?
No money for jobs to keep the economy going. I wonder how much these ads to downgrade other politicians cost us Canadians. So much waste.
