I am dismayed about such a simple, misinformed and inaccurate column. There is no mention about our debt which has risen 16 per cent to a total of $48 billion which consumes 24.3 per cent of our provincial GDP!
The interest on this debt is consuming $8 million dollars a day—down the drain for what?
Adding the provincial debt to the federal at $650 billion and it paints a picture of a house of cards that is starting and will collapse.
Responsible reporting and government would have put this front and centre.
I wonder if any of you look at what is happening in the U.S. that threw tax monies down the drain, satisfying vote buying and a bloated, inefficient bureaucracy.
The time has come to address these issues and we need educated people with courage to do it. I can’t see any here or, for that matter, in any party right now.
