"Rise up, the public's getting screwed!" Empty "Rise up, the public's getting screwed!"

This report is about how Campbell River is handling the loss of tax revenue from the Catalyst mill and increased operating costs.

A 13.6 per cent property tax increase is prompting talk of a tax uprising in Campbell River.

Port Alberni residents barely said a word when their taxes were raised 24%...or maybe their dissatisfaction was expressed during the last election when a new mayor was elected to take the lead?

Wait till we see what the killing of the HST does to our taxes next year. Too many people think that everything is free if the governments paying for it.

Some pretty tough language here, but I guess it has to be said in some way,
Something to think about especially when it comes time for elections.
When are the Canadian public going to wake-up , and become involved with the Politics of Elected Governments ?

‘Entitlement’ my ass, I paid cash for my Old Age Security!!!! Just because they borrowed the money, doesn't make my benefits some kind of charity or handout !! Gold plated MP pensions and Civil Service Government benefits, aka free healthcare, outrageous retirement packages, 67 paid holidays, 20 weeks paid vacation, unlimited paid sick days, now that's welfare, and they have the nerve to call me a 'greedy senior' and my retirement, an ‘entitlement’ !!!!!!

What the HELL's wrong with us???


Someone please tell me what the HELL's wrong with all the people that run this country!!!!!!

We're "broke" & can't help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless etc.,???????????

but spent 1.2 billions of dollars for G-20 events
In the last months we have provided aid to Haiti , Chile , and Turkey . And now Khanistan , Pakistan ......home of bin Laden. Literally, BILLIONS of DOLLARS!!!

Our retired seniors living on a 'fixed income' receive no aid nor do they get any breaks while our government and religious organizations pour Hundreds of Billions of $$$$$$'s and Tons of Food to Foreign Countries!

They call Old Age Security and Healthcare an entitlement even though most of us have been paying for it all our working lives and now when it’s time for us to collect, the government is running out of money. Why did the government borrow from it in the first place?

We have hundreds of adoptable children who are shoved aside to make room for the adoption of foreign orphans.

CANADA: a country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed hungry, elderly going without 'needed' meds, lack of housing and clean water on Reserves, and mentally ill without treatment -etc, etc.

They have a 'Benefit' for the people of Haiti ships and planes lining up with food, water, tents, clothes, bedding, doctors, and medical supplies.

Imagine if the *GOVERNMENT* gave 'US' the same support they give to other countries.
Sad isn't it?
