LETTERS: Profiting while seniors sink

Editor:

Re: Rising rates adding to seniors’ burden, April 3 editorial.

Your editorial is correct in noting the burden placed on some seniors by rising corporate rates.

While Hydro and ICBC made a profit last year, no reductions were passed along to customers.

The government extracted around $300 million from each corporation which flowed into its sinkhole to “balance the budget.” So they say.

A sinkhole is “a hole in the ground providing a route for surface water to disappear underground.” So apt.
