EDITOR, The Tribune.
Presently the middle class, along with the working class are under siege by a government searching for answers on how to resolve a bitter problem created by the government themselves. How do we pay Canada’s huge national debt? Sure we have been told the expenditure of a near trillion dollars, all borrowed by our national and provincial governments, was for the nation’s benefit. Sure there have been and remains absolutely no transparency, in black and white proving why, where and how these multi-billions of dollars have been spent, and who are the beneficiaries of this expenditure. How will this massive debt be paid off?
Well it’s difficult to say. The present liberal administration in Ottawa seems to be expanding upon further expenditures such as full time $10.00 a day childcare, followed up with possibly establishing a Pharmacare Programme, with full time dental and drug plans. Further spending to assure the electorate is pacified and ready for the economic hammer to drop. In late 2022, after the provincial elections have taken place in Ontario and elsewhere, the governments of Canada, provincial and municipal will come for your wallets, your saved moneys, your inheritances and place a subtle, yet difficult to understand bill in front of you. A bill that must be paid.
There will be no transparency (understanding) or accountability (who and whom issued and got paid these massive amounts of money). We have experienced a new technique of parliamentary decision making in the past, the ability to place hundreds of hidden bills within one larger more appealing bill (i.e. Climate Change Bills). Pass one, and all are passed. Decisions in Council, emergency directives and Ministerial Decree’s have and will continue to happen. The new national crisis will be the payment of a national debt, a credit card that will reach its limit soon enough.
One can ask our government poetically
“What about us?
What about the times you said you had all the answers?
What about us?
What about all the broken happy ever afters?
What about us?
What about all the plans that ended in disaster?
What about us?
What about love? What about trust?
We are problems that want to be solved.
We are children that need to be loved.
We are willing, we came when you called.
But many fooled us, enough is enough!
The Canadian Public need to open their eyes to what has happened in our land. Those with little respect for Canadians’ national funds have and continue to squander our collective wealth, and will shortly come for whatever else we may possess. These politicians and bureaucrats have been found to be of little creativity and certainly of low caliber when asked how they will solve our many national crisis. For example the tar sands of Alberta. Ottawa and the many powerful lobby’s that oppose these sources of energy fight to close down this provinces’ main source of employment and revenue. Do these protagonists have any real alternative for Alberta? Save the planet, and we will work it out in time. False prophets and opportunists with power, power over you, you and me too.
We are the searchlights, we need to see in the dark
We are rockets, pointed up at the stars.
We are millions of beautiful hearts (Canadians)
And you have sold us down the river too far.
It’s now the time to let them know.
We are awake, opened eye and in the know. Ready.
