Lack of respect for teachers?
I watched carefully Eastlink’s coverage of the fall sitting of the P.E.I. legislature and the end-ofyear interviews with our premier, Wade MacLauchlan, on CBC and Eastlink as well as his New Year’s greeting.
I don’t see the change in our new Liberal government. Just more of the same arrogance and pompousness. The players for the most part have just changed. The stage has just been redecorated. Where’s the real character change?
Our young people have very poor role models for their behaviour in general and their attitude towards hard-working dedicated people past and present in this province. Where’s the respect and fairness in this government?
Your retired teachers, Mr. Premier, over the age of 65, have still not had their very own drug insurance plan reinstated to 2013 coverage.
In the fall sitting of the legislature 2013 the stroke of the Liberal government pen made it impossible for us to afford the premiums on our very own drug insurance group plan, that we pay for entirely out of our own pockets, and have had since 1973. We are still waiting to have our coverage reinstated.
If it was a mistake on government’s part, why is it not corrected by the same pen of authority? Who in your government, Mr. Premier, is speaking up for the QEH commissionaires who were so disgracefully fired from their dedicated jobs back in October 2015, and replaced with cheap labour?
Your recent rhetoric, Mr. Premier, about consultation and collaboration is just a front. My colleagues and I don’t see the change.
We see a total lack of respect for the once one-room schoolteacher, who practically volunteered to teach, so that our young people could get a decent education. So how about it, Mr. Premier, let’s see the real change. Pearl Saville MacEachern, Clyde River
