My Opinion Counts

Parties mum on spending details- after Auditor General gave his report on excessive and inappropriate spending.

Our local newstation has a facebook site where sometimes you can give responses to some of the news items of the day. This was the first time I chose to actually send in a response. So here I was tending my "Farmville" (can't let my crops die, or forget to gather the eggs and milk!), when I hear my name, mine! COOL!

They read my response during the newscast (a long with a half dozen others). It's kinda cool to hear them say your name and read what you have to say.

This was my response to the question- Do you think names should be listed for the public to see of those MLA's who had very questionable spending using tax payer money.

I think all MLA's should be ashamed of themselves and their conduct, especially with the economic devastation that has recently occurred. So many taxpayers are feeling the pinch and yet the MLA's put themselves above everyone else, taking what isn't theirs to take. To use the excuse that the guidelines were not clear is also shameful, common sense tells them it was JUST WRONG.

And get this, not only did they read it once, they read it again when talking directly to the leader of one of the parties! Wow, I just may have to put forth my opinion more often!
