Below is a missive I sent to my MP on 28 May 2015 regarding the monument that only about three per cent of Canadians support.
I don’t think I am alone in disbelief when so many basic services have been cut of late and this government just displays arrogance and disdain. Lastly, I hate to admit I voted Conservative in last federal election.
Mr Duncan, MP Vancouver Island North,
Give your head and the rest of your government a good shake – $7 million for a monument? There are much higher priorities like funding the operations of Coast Guard, actually providing life time pensions to disabled vets, etc., etc.
