Politics causes deficit budgets
The province wants suggestions to balance the budget. Start with election reform and reduce the number of MLAs. The province wants to reduce municipalities from 70 to 20 so there is no need for 27 MLAs. Legislate a Provincial Ombudsman to investigate MLAs, police, schools, hospitals and municipalities. Eliminate the Conflict of Interest Commissioner, the Ethics Commissioner and Police Commissioner.
Eliminate the so-called slush fund for MLAs and paid Professional Days for teachers. A study shows provinces have not been short-changed by the federal government. Government after government on P.E.I. brings in deficits because of politics. John W. A. Curtis, Summerside
