Looking for a bailout

News Jan 22, 2009 Flamborough Review

Dear Editor,

Four score and 10 months ago, our municipal forefathers brought forth upon this land of Wentworth one government. We in Flamborough have been taxed beyond inflation, the GNP and reason, so that the financial integrity of this historic city shall not perish from the face of the earth.

It appears to me that it is nothing more than a failed bailout. What compensates one municipal officer today ran the Village of Waterdown – with the same services. If the financial and social playing fields were level, this would translate into a minimum wage of $20-$30 per hour today!

Tony Clement (our founding father who art in Ottawa now) should do penance and offer up the $1.8 billion for Hamilton’s sewer plant, thus saving his adopted out children from the mercy of the financial workers. That would be as green as it gets!

Orley Gunby, Waterdown

PS – If municipal meddling hadn’t sapped our finances, we might all have owned two minivans – his and hers – thus keeping the auto industry afloat.
