Elections are in the air! Gail Shea is running around telling us the Federal Government will provide $50 Million toward a new power cable to the island. Wow!!! Paul Martin proposed that 10 years ago,but Harper blanked it shortly after being elected. Its laughable that Shea is now attempting to win votes with this latest revived old promise. Does she really think we have forgotten the unemployment (EI) changes. How she happened to have a phone call and left the house just before the EI vote was taken. The fact we are the only Province in Canada that now has two different EI zones!!. However, for her its the same old politics as usual, she believes we islanders have short memories and all will be forgotten by the time we go to the polls.
Next we have Wade MacLauchlan, he has the same attitude, islanders will forget. He is running around the province shaking hands patting backs and beaming smiles at photo ops. He doesn’t want to talk about the PNP scandal, he doesn’t want to talk about the e Gaming scandal and he doesn’t want to talk about the huge debt write offs. Instead he promises a rosy future, a new era of open and transparent government. We should note here: Robb Lantz PC’s is promising much the same but at least said he will have a Royal Commission into the PNP and e Gaming issues. I recently sent an email to MacLauchlan asking him to open the same Investigation. Let me show you my email and his disinterested response.
