Political distraction

Letters

Open letter to all political parties and their leaders

When the ‘hell’ are you people going to get over your petty partisan politics and do what you have been elected to do? As a senior citizen of 76 years, I thought I had seen all the self-serving stupidity there was to see. Apparently I was wrong — you (collectively) have just raised the bar.

In case you politicians failed to notice, there are a  huge number of issues that need your attention.

This unnecessary election is just another political distraction that the honest taxpayers of this country can ill afford. I call on every member sitting in the house, regardless of political affiliation, to look in a mirror and honestly tell the people of Canada you are not ashamed of this farce.

If we all conducted our businesses as you do in the House of Commons with your childish shouting and stomping of your feet, there would be no tax dollars for you to squander.
