Politics by Arrogance!


I grow weary listening to John Barrett tell us we are not smart enough to understand MMP. If we just reflect on what FPTP has provided us over the last 12 years surely change is needed. Ghiz promised in 2008 that all islanders would have a doctor. Today, MacLauchlan is promising to hire new doctors. In 2016 a majority of islanders voted for Proportional Representation, MacLauchlan denied our vote. Around the same period MacLauchlan decided to close five schools. After months of meetings, debates, tension and stress, the liberal appointed panel came up with recommendations. MacLauchlan was receiving such a back lash he decided to change his mind. No school closures after all? Instead he concentrated on building more roundabouts with our money, much support to his construction family and friends. My personal experience with the MacLauchlan government was health care, perhaps I should rephrase that as no health care. I was diagnosed with a fatal blood disease that require chemo treatment. It wasn’t classified as cancer so I was denied the treatment. I contacted the Minister of Health, he apparently couldn’t help, wasn’t able to interfere with dept of health policy ??. Did I mention he was the Minister of Health? Do I really need to mention Geo Sweep, PNPs, HST, and the many other failed programs. How about the latest, carbon tax? Free driving license? Duh, reduce the excise tax to off set the new carbon tax? MacLauchan still receives money from this shady deal while islanders do not receive the federal tax rebate. So folks if you still think we should take advice from John Barrett then you will probably vote for more of the same corrupt and arrogant liberal governance. I’m voting Green and I’m voting Yes to changing how we elect politicians. I sincerely hope the majority of islanders will do likewise. If we fail to take this opportunity then we deserve to get the finger from Richard Brown. God Bless and keep reading
