Letter: Fletcher column has to go

I had decided not to read Mr. Fletcher’s column anymore as he annoys me mostly. But like a moth drawn to the light, I could not resist.

His critic on our new federal government is unfair.

We all know that Mr. Harper did not leave with a balanced budget. Shuffling monies around is easy and any company knows that.

He should also know that LNG is a resource which is more expensive and destructive compared to just about any other resource. Building a bridge to replace the Massey Tunnel is foolish at best. Why not build another new tunnel beside the old one? I know why, the river has to be dredged so big tankers can come in to get to an energy resourse which is neither needed nor wanted, just like the dam in the interior. Money does not seem to matter.

I wonder how they manage their next balanced budget. My guess is on more cuts for our services and some clever shuffling.

So, let’s see what the Federal Liberals will do and give them a bit more time. Our provincial Liberals (if you can call them that) are a lost cause and will hopefully be replaced by our next election before they do more harm.
