Politicians need to remember they are our employees
OK, now I’m mad as hell, etc., etc. Somebody come up with a way of telling our politicians exactly what we do/do not want without voting for the lesser of two evils.
Somehow they and we have forgotten they’re our employees hired to do a job.
An election promise is a contract with an employer, not a license to run up the expense account and undermine our trust.
I do not want fish farms, oil tankers, pipelines, a $59-million museum in Richmond (seriously?) or a whole list of other concessions to financial interests other than ours. I want made in Canada, affordable housing and jobs for our kids/grandkids and I want it now.
Why can’t we make something worthwhile go viral in Canada, gangnam-style? Don’t like what Harper’s doing—fire him. I’m sure we can find just cause in there somewhere. Don’t agree with a government policy—say so, send a memo, call a board meeting, issue a warning, be a boss.
I’d like to say I feel better having vented but —not so much. There’s just no place to take this so I guess—we just take it.
