The G20/G8 summit is a terrible waste of Canadian tax dollars when we have so many issues in Canada that have gone unnoticed. We give money in great gobs to other countries for aid and yet our own poor get almost nothing. The homeless number increases and the poor get poorer as the gap between rich and poor grows. We rarely hear the term ‘middle class’ used any more and the question is, what ever happened to the middle class? I guess they either moved up to the ranks of the wealthy or down to the hordes of Canadian poor. I have always supported the Conservative Party but frankly lately I am moving towards the Green. The Liberals give the keys of the store to Quebec and anyone else who greases their palms and the NDP ? Well look what Bab Rae did to Ontario, need I say any more.
Being a politician used to be an Honourable thing but now it is just a way to serve self interests and hang in long enough to obtain the fat government indexed pension. Mind you if they keep up the billion dollar giveaways and healthcare scandals, we wont have any money left for anyone.
