Weekend Courier - - Opinion -

I RE­CENTLY re­ceived a re­newal for my health in­sur­ance. This has in­creased $70 a year.

My home in­sur­ance went up $100 a year. My car regis­tra­tion went up over $85 a year.

My driver's li­cence re­newal went up, my power bill and my wa­ter bill have gone up dra­mat­i­cally.

I went to fuel my car up and it was $1.40 a litre.

Yes, my rates go up ev­ery year. My wages, how­ever, have not in­creased at all and I can't imag­ine any­one else's wages ris­ing enough to cover these in­creases.

So I ask when will it all come to a grind­ing halt? This is a tick­ing time bomb for our eco­nomic sta­bil­ity.

These in­creases must stop.
