Letters to the Editor

LETTERS: We’re doing your jobs


I would like to extend a thank you to CUPE for forcing me to stop and smell the roses… or is that the smell of rotting garbage?

Why yes, I believe it is.

Thanks for making me spend hours of my time driving to the landfill, paying out my cash money for a service I already pay for and waiting in lineups on my time off to do so.

You thought that going on strike would foster support for your cause? Not here. Not at my neighbours’ houses either.

Good job.

Civilians have started to do your members’ jobs, too. Maybe we don’t need you that badly after all.

B. Jakob, White Rock
