Harper: Don't fix the roof when it is pouring rain!
After announcing that the government has decided that seniors will work 2 years more until they can retire and to make cuts to needed social programs and pensions, the federal government says it has approved plans to build a magnificent $42-million glass dome on Parliament Hill as a new home for the House of Commons — a temporary one. Experts involved with this project think the costs could cost taxpayers well over $100 million. This is not a needed patch job. It is purely cosmetic. At a time when many Canadians are struggling,(yet being asked to give more), this expenditure is grossly disgusting. Let the government know that as a taxpayer who will be paying for this project, that you do not approve of this expenditure! Tell Harper not to fix the roof when it is pouring rain!
