Firefighters over hockey

I sometimes wonder how politicians’ brains are wired; obviously there is a short circuit somewhere.

Our city fathers are so proud of themselves, holding the tax increase to 1.66 per cent. Had they gone just a bit more, 1.72 per cent, we could have five new firefighters.

They thought we don’t need them. Well, I think most folks in Abbotsford will tell them what we don’t need is a hockey team and arena that are bleeding us dry for several millions of dollars each and every year.

Pull the plug on the Heat. If they cannot make it on their own, it is certainly not up to the taxpayer to subsidize them, and their wealthy owners.

Firefighters mean the difference between life and death sometimes. How much more important is that over a hockey team?
