    6 years ago Comments: Again, another attempt by the Liberal Government to victimize and marginalize a hardworking, responsible minority group. When I questioned Mrs. Jaczek’s staff on the matter they admitted, after being unable to provide empirical evidence of Mrs. Jaczek’s claims, that the stats she had presented to the Legislator were false. Either she is incompetent or outright lied. Either way she had lost the trust of the house, her riding and the general public and should step-down immediately.
