Letter: Weak-kneed choice of politicians

Do away with bilingualism—its antiquated form helps no one. Do away with the Senate and all the huge pensions given for patronage.

To the editor:

While looking ahead to the federal election I find our choice of politicians weak-kneed.

Which political party will lead this country to a place of respect among the nations? Which party has the guts to change statutes that would help us Canadians achieve what our forefathers died for—freedom, health care and safety for all Canadians?

Let’s do away with bilingualism—its antiquated form helps no one.

Do away with the Senate and all the huge pensions given for patronage.

Just these two items would put a lot more taxpayers’ dollars toward better uses.

I encourage everyone to start writing to their politicians the priority of health care and safety.

 

Roger Werger, Kelowna
