Notice: Nobody is taking responsibility for the present situation!
It would be ludicrous to expect a businessman to explain to you that putting a huge purchase on your credit card that you cannot pay off at the end of the month would eventually cost you many times the original price. But just like a loan shark or a shady businessman, our elected “leader”, our Mayor in conjunction with his cohorts in EPC, has chosen to bribe the short-sighted taxpayer with an impossible dream, a decade of tax freezes.
Add to that the irresponsible attitude of the Provincial Government, that has more caucus members elected from the city than there are city councillors, and that continues to starve the city for tax revenue, and it is clear ‘Democracy’ in Manitoba is broken.
It seems the only hope for Winnipeg and Manitoba lies in a much more educated and responsible electorate, because presently, the existing population of politicians has the majority of Manitobans mesmerized with their slight of hand and confidence scams.
