The Western Star - - EDITORIAL -

Watch­ing the lead­ers de­bate and if we weren’t in trou­ble be­fore we are now, lis­ten­ing to these three spew out how much bet­ter one is over the other.

If this was true wouldn’t this prov­ince be in a bet­ter fi­nan­cial po­si­tion than we are?

How is that sunny ways are com­ing and there is no money for ev­ery­thing promised by all three of them?

How is that a few days ago, be­fore the elec­tion was called, we were broke and go­ing into debt fur­ther and fur­ther, and overnight three in­di­vid­u­als have all the an­swers on the way for­ward to save the prov­ince?

Did some­one wave a magic wand and cre­ate in­dus­try in the prov­ince that none of us know about?

Did the prov­ince win some lot­tery, or did the price of oil go up to $160 a bar­rel?

How much longer will we sit and al­low the wool to be pulled over our eyes?

For God’s sake, we are drown­ing in debt. In­stead of telling us where you are go­ing to spend all these fake dol­lars, tell us how we can gen­er­ate good pay­ing jobs with sus­tain­able in­dus­tries.

With­out jobs there is no rev­enue. There is no one pay­ing taxes.

Get your heads out of the sand and work on sav­ing this prov­ince in­stead of your own self-serv­ing plans.

Just one man’s point of view.
