    Please give us a break. We need new sewage plants to help clean our water system also how about the roads. Who is going to look at more flowers when the zoo over charges the public to go. Tax payers keep flipping the bills, as Mr. trudeau gave how much last month for this. I am sure it must of came out of his pocket. If the banks have extra money how about giving it to the people who do their banking with them. I guess when you over charge customers who bank with you it’s okay to give it away.

    The banks seem to be able to give money away. Just like the government, does nobody have to answer for the waste. Also what ever happens with the money that the casinos bring in or the VLT;s. It is like a giant hole that money goes in and no one has a clue where it goes.
