Use elec­tion votes to voice your dis­gust

The Daily Press (Timmins) - - OPINION -

With Gen­eral Mo­tors say­ing there are no vi­able op­tions and that its decision to close the Oshawa plant is fi­nal, Uni­for pres­i­dent Jerry Dias stated, “I am frankly dis­gusted by the si­lence of our gov­ern­ment.” While I sel­dom ( if ever) un­der­stand or agree with Mr. Dias on his eco­nomic or po­lit­i­cal plat­forms, I, along with many other Cana­di­ans, un­der­stand the frus­tra­tion of not be­ing heard by our gov­ern­ment.

As his “talk­ing di­rectly to the prime min­is­ter” has been un­suc­cess­ful, he should now start “talk­ing di­rectly” to his membership to re­mind them of the up­com­ing fed­eral elec­tion and all the help ( or lack thereof ) that the prime min­is­ter has been when they are at the bal­lot box.

Al Wil­ley,
