Rustico-Emerald MLA Brad Trivers raised the issue during Friday’s question period where he had a copy of the brochure that listed several measures from the latest budget. Trivers said it was an attempt to influence Islanders.
“The only thing that’s missing from this brochure is the Liberal logo,” he said.
I was amused when I heard MLA Brad Trivers raise concerns about the government using the property tax assessment letters to influence voters. They enclosed a propaganda pamphlet in with the 2018 property tax bills. The pamphlet extolled the government and their generous programs and grants. Indeed a very sneaky way to gain votes, and not forgetting, this was done at tax payers expense. However. it was wasted on me, when I received my letter the only thing that interested me was the new tax assessment, the remaining contents I promptly dispatched to the garbage bin without reading!!!The letter was similar to all these other special offers we get in the mail. You know the kind, Capitol One cards, health and or life insurance deals! I wonder how many others also ended up in the garbage? Just another example of Liberals wasting tax payers money in their own interest. Respectfully Submitted F.Ben Rodgers Abram Village PE. Tel 902-786-3020
