To the editor,
Anyone who watches the late news must have seen the big announcement recently: the shipbuilding deal has hit a snag. Now get this. While politicians have promoted jobs getting underway they “do not even have the design” yet and it’s something that’s not done in Canada, so it’s being “outsourced.” What a big surprise! It makes one wonder how much more of the deal will leave our shores, including the $25 billion.
So, if you are of working age and waiting for a job, pack your bag and head west. I just lost another family member to the West. Thank God for Alberta.
As anyone who watched this newscast can verify, it wasn’t Peter MacKay who made the announcement. But you know “the jobs start here.” These announcements are such garbage. He recently stood before a meeting in Merigomish and told them how pleased he was to give $115,000 to the local group to repair the old Merigomish school house (another lost cause). But what he didn’t tell them was that unless the municipal council donated $25,000 to the cause he couldn’t have given it. So council slid another one by the taxpayers. I got that information right from a member of council.
And Stephen Harper must be rolling on the floor laughing with Justin Trudeau leading the race for the Liberal leadership. If he becomes leader what damage Bob Rae hasn’t done he will surely finish. Ontario hasn’t recovered from the damage done when Rae was NDP premier and ran the party and the province to the wall. Then he joined the Liberals and has done them great harm. I was hoping Mark Garneau would become leader, and maybe that can happen yet.
And in view of the distress the shipbuilding deal is in perhaps it’s time for Darrell Dexter to fetch back the $300 million he gave the Irvings and drop it back into the coffer of the Nova Scotia taxpayers. At the rate things are going downhill the busiest people employment wise will be the welfare office.
And the big announcement by the Wellness Centre – no smokers allowed on the property because smoking is bad for your health, which we all know, but what kind of “wellness centre” serves alcohol, french fries and chocolate bars? What a crazy place we live in.
