Taxpayer dollars should not have been used for search

This is a crock and I feel that Steenson is right with all his comments printed in Tuesday’s Advocate, but I want to add to them. Someone should be reamed out, demoted, or fired for such a stupid move and I am going to ask a few political questions. I’m not a racist but I won’t cry or hurt if someone wants to, or does call me a racist. Who ordered the search?

Who ordered the search?

Was the search conducted, because he was an MLA, a Sikh, or both?

A Sikh always wears a Kirpan (dagger) as part of his religion. Was this search for a missing Kirpan?

Was this a straight political search due to the Premier wanting to show her power off?

Mr. Steenson was right as to other people working the highways and some that risk their lives daily, and that’s the tow truck drivers. Where is their RCMP protection?

I would like to see a public explanation for the waste of taxpayer funds from the RCMP, our local MLA and from the premier herself.

I feel they all owe us, the taxpayers, an explanation for the waste of around $30,000 for nothing.

Oh how gratuitous the Power of Power must feel.

Tom Skoreyko,
