To the Editor/Letters to the Editor,
Every Canadian citizen should be doing something to stop the outrage that the Conservative Government is trying to pull over the people of this country!
A Billion Dollars or more to host a couple of meetings is INSANE!
Yes, Canada should host them once in a while and yes, Canada is responsible to make sure these events go as planned and the participants are not asassinated.
BUT! We don’t have to host it in the middle of a busy city! If this government is really serious about fiscal restraint, they could host these events in much more secure places at a faction of the cost.
If it wasn’t so important to show case Toronto (are we sucking up to the Toronto electorate before an election?) we could hold them else where.
And if it wasn’t so important to have a photo op with the leaders, these meetings could be held in doors with very narrow and secure corridors of access. You would only need a handful of security officers instead of every RCMP and rent-a-cop from sea to sea to sea.
But NO, Harper wants to spend a BILLION dollars of OUR money to show off. Our government should be ashamed of this travesty of fiscal mismanagement!
Please write your MP to demand they follow your rights as a citizen.
