Letters: Don’t complain about your own life choices

Letters to the editor from within the Sooke community.

Re: Could be worse, letter to editor, March  25, 2015 Issue.

The loophole I see  (with the story) is allowing fringe elements to come – or return –  to Canada and think they have the right to all the services that those of us who have lived here all our lives have been taxed for.

You left Canada for a “foreign” country to live a life, pursue a career, collect a pension all the while paying nothing into the system of the country you are now complaining about.

You list costs for services here as a non resident.

You also comment on being able to access all the wonderful medical services in America with no waits.

Oddly enough you didn’t list the costs of being able to access these wonderful services in this foreign country.

You also didn’t mention if you have the ability to attain medical coverage in this wonderful foreign country at a low monthly rate.

Maybe you are not permitted to acquire medical insurance in this wonderful foreign country as you require too much service for monies paid.

Take a number and go to the back of the bus. My wife and I require medical services too.

We’ve paid our dues!

Have a nice life in which ever country you choose to live in and complain about.
