Letter: MSP out of whack

Dear Editor,

I just wanted to thank the few people who have spoken up again regarding the MSP premiums demanded by our reigning government.

In most cases it is the lower-income workers who take the brunt of the costs that are so out of whack with reality – $30,000 per year same as $130,000. Some kind of interesting bookkeeping here. Do your research and see what our minster of finance had to say. Obviously, his MSP is taken care of. If I may, it seems to me that there is a lot of money available for many things the closer we get to election time.

What I would like to see, and have wanted to for years, is better care to the children aging out of the welfare system (for a lack of the proper wording). And, how about taking care of the poverty of the children and poor we have in our own province.

It’s a shame-on-all that we are in the lead of all the provinces for lack of concern for our most vulnerable. Who will step up and do something? Please…

Penny Myers, Langley City
