Government letting us down
The time is long past for the silent majority to cease becoming second-class citizens in our own country.
According to the Fraser Institute, we pay 43 cents out of every dollar we earn to run our country and fund the institutions we hold dear — medical, education, domestic and national security. But are we, the paying public, getting our money’s worth?
How many more of us must lay injured on a roadside waiting for an ambulance that is busy responding to an addict overdosing for the third time in a month? It’s absurd that the incarcerated eat healthier and have access to amenities a law-abiding single parent on assistance doesn’t. It’s outrageous that 30,000 Canadians are homeless every night, according to a CBC report, while $15,000 to $20,000 is being spent on each of the 32,000 border jumpers who have arrived this year, according to the National Post.
We can stop this nonsense on election day 2019 by electing a party with its priorities straight. Robert Brown, Cranbrook
