People should be outraged

Time to wake up everyone. I just read about the government cutting back on secondary education funding. Great, what’s next? Seniors, students, non-profits, where do you go from here Mr. Stelmach?

Time to wake up everyone. I just read about the government cutting back on secondary education funding. Great, what’s next? Seniors, students, non-profits, where do you go from here Mr. Stelmach?

Did your government cut funding in these areas to make sure that your unsubstantiated raises would be covered?

In a province as rich as ours has been, I’m saddened that people frequently sit back and allow this to happen. There should be outrage, also in an area where there is one of the highest populations of over-50’s.

They want to cut back or stop building of nursing homes because they are under the impression that the average working person can support our elders with at-home care.

This is completely unrealistic, due to cost, both to the individual’s well-being and the pocket book.)

Mr. Stelmach, what right in “tough times” do you and your government have giving yourselves substantial increases, when you are using our money?

If you continue down this road, maybe you won’t be in your seat in the next election, especially if people start to understand what is really going on.

Frustration will be at a new high, and despite the fact that we realize that we have to tighten our belts, we would want our government to do the same with their belts.

At the moment we, as a population are behaving like frogs in water, not realizing it is going to starting to boil. Many of us will not see it coming.
