No money, don’t buy

I read that the mayor of Toronto, Rob Ford, has foregone raises for himself and city heads as an example for future union negotiations. He has also cut council’s office budgets by 40 per cent.

It is unfortunate that our council does not have the foresight to see what the consequences of their greediness will cause, because we know that the city unions will be the next to demand more money.

Since the city is in such bad shape financially, why is the city wasting money on parks?

All the useless splurging, when we just closed a pool in Matsqui, which would get much more use than another park.

A simple rule we live by in my household – if there is no money we don’t buy anything.
