Propaganda wastes money

Editor:

I find it regrettable that Conservative MP Russ Hiebert has stooped to using his periodical household mailout to deliver a negative American-style election campaign message against the NDP.

It is ironic that taxpayers in our South Surrey-White Rock-Cloverdale riding have to fund Russ’s out-of-touch fabrication of imaginary NDP tax practices.

Hiebert seems unaware that most people are OK with paying taxes for education, medicare, environment and other necessities we hold in common. What we don’t like is paying taxes to fund Conservative party propaganda that slams other Canadian political parties, while giving taxpayers nothing of value for their dearly departed tax money.

Regrettably, Hiebert wastes our money in this way.
