LETTERS: Burning question

Apparently B.C. has overspent its budget for fighting wildfires again this year.

Apparently B.C. has overspent its budget for fighting wildfires again this year.

Next year will probably be more of the same, so I have a suggestion: lower our politician’s exorbitant yearly salaries to equal what every “regular Joe” gets paid per month. The excess we will have left over at the end of every year will more than likely cover our forest fighting expenses, with lots left over to feed the hungry and supply our kids with proper education.

So, here’s a challenge going out to all of our Canadian politicians: use your campaign funds to fight fires in your electoral coverage, instead of fighting one another and littering our media and beautiful province with your useless campaign signs and back-stabbing, throat-slitting tactics. Perhaps then you all will be worthy of anyone’s vote.

I wonder just how many or how few of our politicians will actually do that?

Probably none. So much for moving forward to a decent way of life for Canadians.
