Let’s Not Upset Anyone

  • Bill, your post appears to suggest that NS is hurling down a slippery slope out of control. Has the government not had 3 years of success after success.
    Those successes are only going to accumulate over the next year. I am sure the Yarmouth ferry will be a success, surely the government will achieve the budget surplus it promised, without a doubt the unions are going to warmly accept the 0% increases and there will be no labour strife, our new hospital will be well under construction, health care waiting times will be dramatically reduced, and the government is going to strongly oppose, and refuse to implement, Trudeau’s Carbon tax which will cost Nova Scotians dearly.
    I am sure there is nothing sinister or “political” in choosing to go to the polls early. Surely your are not suggesting the list of success stories is in doubt.
    Regarding the survey polls, I do not know who the pollsters call, but it is sure not anyone I know or talk to. The general consensus is MacNeil has to go, he is a disaster.

  • The NS Gov’t needs to stop pouring the majority of our annual highways budget into new 100 series roads and FOCUS attention on the majority of older highways and secondary roads that are in desperate need of maintenance, which has been neglected for decades. Accidents on our existing 100 series highways could be significantly reduced IMO if there was a greater police presence. Travelling from Halifax to Sydney, I rarely see more than 2 or 3 police cars along this entire route. This seemingly lack of evident police presence lets drivers think they can travel at whatever speed they like with impunity.

  • An unnecessarily early election in order to ‘extend a mandate’ for a poorly performing gov’t. seems to be little more that a further waste of taxpapers’ $$$. Unfortunately the outcome is unlikely to benefit citizens very much because ,sadly, the current Opposition leadership doesn’t produce an excessive amount of confidence either.
