Money for everyone... if you're a unionized multi-national

Posted on Mon, Dec 5, 2011 at 10:56 AM

Isn't it nice to see Dexter and our ruling NDP party finding money for Bowater? 50 million dollars over 5 years to be exact. Saving jobs is always a good idea, but where will these jobs go when the 50 million runs out? Will there even be a pulp industry in five years? It's not hard to see that the industry is failing and in a big way. Is it wise to be putting millions of dollars in a dying venture?

Where is all the money for schools? Why do we have to pay $50 dollars for school supplies such as kleenex and tennis balls!? What about waiting 8 months for an MRI because there is simply no money for healthcare to install or operate more? What about the abhorrent state of most of our secondary roads, because of course... there is no money.

Our province has a history or propping up unsuccessful ventures and this will do nothing more than add to the cue of greedy trough munching companies threatening to leave our province if they aren't granted public funds, all the while paying million dollar bonuses and granting golden parachute severance packages. Throughly disgusted with my tax dollars going towards keeping terminal industries on life support!! —Maelstrom
