Just learned that tenders have gone out to sell off our public asset, PUC. What a shame that the neo-liberal minded people in this town want to follow, like sheep, the Chiarelli, Liberal government, urgings. It is like our water being sold to Nestle for a song, Like other resources going to multi nationals that do not pay their fair share in taxes ie aggregate on French’s Hill. What a shame, but because we are all so complacent, every good thing we have had is being eroded. The corporate coup is complete and greed has become the norm. What a shame!!!
Will our children and grand children thank us some day. I think not. Short term gain will create long-term pain. History has told us this for years and years and more years but the leadership and people fall into this trap over and over again. I believe now that our Prime Minister, Premier and their corporate buddies have their way and municipal elected officials follow suit, the future looks pretty sketchy.
Maybe we have to look at what is happening in North Dakota and take a stand against this kind of mindless governance and stand up for what is right.
