The comestic rrevamps I am referring to is the numerous attempts to revtitalize the downtown area over the years around Gore Park. Like the fancy slate sidewalks and so on.

What about NAFTA, the free trade agreements, is not the government responsible for the implementation of the policies? Does it make sense to loss good paying jobs here when companies move to exploit labout over there in China or India? What about Elect to Work or workfare, please explain how these policies are for the good of the people? There has been a marked decrease in worker's rights all across the board, yet we have the explosion the the CEO's and so earn, at the expense of those who struggle.

The cutbacks are definitely the cause of government policies, social assistance was cut but 21% in 1998, the amounts people receive are subsistant to live on. Yet we have seen our provincial government give themselves 27% raises for what? What about many workers being denied access to EI benefits? I could go on.

If you cannot see what has been going on, then I feel sorry for you. But then maybe you are part of the problem and not part of the solution.
