Victor Seizes the Day (Glo)

Hi david:

Hope it was a great holiday.

This summer in BC, the HST will come in, the MSP will increase, and
that lunatic carbon tax on gas will increase. Additionally, we will
see the beginning of a 30 per cent increase in hydro rates over the
next three years. You and I are in the backstretch of life so most of
our race has been run. But I really feel for the young generation
entering adulthood. They will be stuck under a government , regardless
of party, that believes there's an unlimited amount of juice in the

The Vanier Institute issued its report on families while you were
away. It is a supremely credible annual report on quality of life in
Canadian families. It found that 70 per cent of working people ages 18
to 34 would be "severely stretched" if their paycheque were delayed by
one week. This cohort is not going to magically become upper middle
class. Our governments continue to spend as though that will happen.

No problem, if people run out of funds, government is there to take care of us all whatever. And never mind the neanderthals who rail against SOCIALISM ...

In the province of BC we need to amalgamate.
One school board for all of BC.
Van, N and W Van, Burnaby, Richmond and New West all under one city hall
Surrey ,Delta , Langley, Cloverda;e one city hall.
PoCo Pt Moody Coquitlam, Maple Ridge, Pitt meadows another single city hall.
Mission Abby and the Whack another solo city hall.
Imagine the savings.
Government in Canada has grown to mamoth proportions. The people of this country can not sustain these levels of waste. Enough already. The tax payers in this country have been squeezed dry.
