Reader: Time We Got Back to Basics

Dear Editor,

I have been watching our children and the education they are not getting.

How often have we seen them in the store with no calculator, and they could not multiply by 10? How many have not practised with a dictionary that shows origins of words to show the connection among the languages? What happens when Spell Check misses words and they spell so poorly that they cannot see it? What happens when the power goes out and they do not have communication skills to replace the machines?

MP Larry Miller Offers Thoughts on Federal Budget

Dear Editor,

I write to you today to express my concerns about the recent budget that was presented by the Government in the House of Commons on March 22nd. This letter serves to present my main concerns with the budget and the impacts that it will have on our country as we move forward.

My first concern is about the size of the deficits that this Government has decided to run. During the campaign, Prime Minister Trudeau promised to run what he called “modest” deficits of $10 billion/year before returning to a balanced budget. Budget 2016 misses this target by a mile. This budget projects deficits of $5.4 billion this year, $29.4 billion in 2016-17, $29.0 billion in 2017-18, $22.8 billion in 2018-19, $17.7 billion in 2019-20, and $14.3 billion in 2020-21. To me, these are not “modest” deficits and are certainly much greater than the promised $10 billion. Worst of all, the Government did not even present a plan to return to balance.
