Four more years of Liberal Majority Government and folks, you only have yourselves to blame. You listened to the silver tongue of Wade MacLauchlan and we are back where we were before the Provincial election. Be it with a few new bodies but with the same old history. MacLauchlan talked long and far into the campaign about honesty-transparency-openness and a new and different type of Government, and at the same time very careful not too mention the Ghiz/Sheridan debacle that went before him.. So far I have only witnessed more of the same, more spin but less transparency, many promises but no fulfillment. The promise of new and meaningful jobs, but alas all we have are cut backs and lay offs. It really seems to me we have exactly the same type of administration as the previous Ghiz government, Wade does talk a better talk than Ghiz but walks the same walk. I have to confess I’m struggling with the many strange decisions taken for the Dept Education. Not even sure of the actual number of cut backs, I have heard 28 and 42, I have heard 12 already in the system are going back into teaching positions. We have been told most jobs will be reduced thru retirement etc. However what I find so baffling is, in the midst of these cuts backs we see a bright new patronage appointment to the dept of education? Enter the good and loyal liberal, Giles Arsenault, he leaves the position of president of the teachers federation. A position where he was supposed to represent teachers? He now tells us (SPIN) that he will continue to work for the teachers but at a different level. That’s an interesting word “level” what he really means he will be working at a different salary level. Probably a salary large enough it could cover the salary of two teachers. I can’t imagine any teachers are happy with Giles Arsenault. But you can bet old silver tongue Wade is happy along with hapless Hal.. In conclusion folks, this is what Maclauchlan meant during the election campaign when he said he would enhance the education of our youth. Now we have a new improved and enhanced Giles Arsenault. Anyone out there still keen to vote liberal.????? As I said you only have yourselves to blame.
God Bless and keep reading
