Province up for sale, people don’t benefit

To the Editor,

Re: Energy misspent on low priorities, Letters, Oct. 22.

S. Brimble highlights concerns over the overcrowding of special needs children in the classrooms resulting in at least one teacher from Duncan tearfully admitting that despite her best effort, she was unable to provide a proper education to her students.

I wholeheartedly agree this is a high priority concern that has been ignored by government.

Education is fundamental to understanding needs and direction for our future.

This $1-billion government is wasting on the so-called smart meter program would fund those special needs children’s education and many other programs arrogantly ignored by this government.

I urge your readers to inform themselves on the misguided criminal attempt at rewarding political insiders.

There is no wasted energy here, just a commitment to keep what we have that is working well. Forget this new technology.

Let’s keep the classroom sizes down like they used to be and stop back room deals. Past practice and old technology sometimes is best. If it isn’t broke, keep it.

People seem quick at dismissing health concerns because they may not be electro-magnetic sensitive themselves, but the reality is you don’t need to be electromagnetic sensitive to be negatively impacted by dumb meters.

Benefactors of this technology infiltrate and corrupt governments. What happened to human rights and our constitution?

B.C. is for sale and not for the benefit of its citizens. No trickledown effect here. Corporations and government get it all.
