LETTER: Make the politicians pay

Make these politicians bag their own lunches unless they go either to Victoria or Ottawa for their meetings. Also dinners!

Response to Jake Siemens letter dated Friday Dec. 4, 2015

Thankyou! Glad someone wrote in about this “so called new government”! Unfortunately, most people I guess did not live thru the “old” Trudeau era and how he put our country into a chaotic state and we paid for years and years.

Don’t forget that we are paying for his two nannies! My lord, what did he do before he became Prime Minister? He obviously paid this out of his own pocket, which he should be doing now. Maybe we should get all the young people that have kids to write to him and request that the government pay for nannies to look after their children as they have to work to pay taxes to support his lavish lifestyle!

What needs to happen is all these politicians should bag their own lunches, so we don’t have to pay for theirs unless they go either to Victoria or Ottawa for their meetings. Also dinners!

They need to drive their “own” cars and put fuel in them. The taxpayer should not be paying anything for this. Everyone else drives to and from work or buses it.

Fire half of them because they don’t have the proper education in that area to run their portfolios or departments. Translink and BC Ferries is a prime area. These two guys get half a million dollars in wages, plus, plus, plus! Lunches, cars and who knows what else.

At last but not least, send them out to take lessons from successful businesses so they can learn what a profit and loss statement is before they are allowed to run for government!
