- 2015 Federal Election
Federal budget bill weakens Canada
To the Editor,
Re: Rally opposes budget bill, June 5.
Last Saturday, I joined thousands of Canadians in more than 70 different ridings across our country and here in Nanaimo to rally against the 425-page Omnibus Budget Bill C-38.
This bill is a disguise. It in fact changes 70 different laws, some have nothing to do with budget, it will gut the Fisheries Act, it will weaken the Environmental Protection Act, and I for one am wondering if this is all to ensure the Enbridge oil flows and the tankers are allowed on our pristine coastline.
At 68 years old, I did not think that I would be lying awake at night worrying about what would be left of “my Canada” for my grandkids.
I wish I could pinch myself and wake up from this nightmare.
For years at my house, the biggest celebration of the year was always July 1, Canada Day. I was so proud to teach my grandkids that they live in the best country in the world.
Maybe this is just all a good decoy to take our minds off of the election fraud issue.
I am Canadian, not Conservative.
