Re: Looking for substance, April 24 editorial.
A title fit for two.
Indeed, the long overdue and heavily backloaded budget is just another one of Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s unlimited impressions of economic competence and leadership.
Since coming to office in 2006, the Conservatives have spent a ton of taxpayer time and dime on mastering the skills of the grand illusion. And grand they are, to the tune of $750 million-and-counting.
Now we find out we’re on the hook for another $13.5 million to promote this so-called budget of theirs. Just typical modus operandi for the Harper government. They would rather spend a ton of money on creating false impressions and perceptions than doing the hard work that Canada truly needs for its economic and environmental health.
As much as I would have liked to appreciate the editorial’s finer points, Peace Arch News’ convenient failure to exclude the names of the politicians and their affiliated parties makes for a very hollow script and seriously questions the PAN’s desire for providing substance of their own.
If the PAN was really serious about wanting a challenger for South Surrey-White Rock candidate Dianne Watts (Federal voters deserve choice, April 29 editorial), then they might do a better job at providing us with information and details of a much higher quality.
