Pointless Protests

Posted on Mon, Mar 7, 2011 at 11:47 AM

Congrats. You held a protest demanding the Canadian Government spend millions and assist in helping and saving your fellow comrads in some far off country that is having a problem with their current leader. Unless you didn't notice, this is Canada. Canadians pay taxes to the our government to improve the lives of Canadians, to pay for health care for Canadians, to provide social programs for Canadians, and much more for Canadians. No where does it say our government must spend money on your comrads. I'd rather see this money spent on helping Canadians who need the help, those with children, the homeless, the sick, those living below the poverty line, and such. I don't recall hearing of your country providing financial assistance to these Canadians who can use the help. So your protest is going to fall on deaf ears and I'll turn my head and ignore you. You moved to this country, you didn't bring your country to Canada. If you want to provide support for your comrads, head to your local bank and send a wire transfer, or hop on a plane back to help. —ProtestAgainstProtests
