LETTER: Disappointed in NDP’s gas-rebate ‘largesse’


I have been an NDP supporter for over 50 years and I am very disappointed in their latest largesse. The NDP is supposed to help the working class and yet here they are pandering to all.

This $110 of our own money that we are going to get back – what a laugh. What is that supposed to do?

It costs over $200 just to fill my tank. Fortunately, I don’t need the money, but I know many do.

The fact that everybody gets it is ridiculous. Does Jimmy Pattison get it? Whats he going to do with it, light his cigar, perhaps?

I think the gov should give $500 to all families with an income under $60,000 then prorate it up to $100,000.

I suspect if you live in South Surrey/White Rock, you probably don’t need this money. I know I don’t.

I would gladly give the cheque to anyone with family income of less than $60,000 or sign it over to the food bank.

I believe this is going to cost $395 million.

How much good could that do to help the homeless or the drug-dependent or people with mental health issues? Come on, NDP, you can do better.
