Politicians take warning, taxpayer is awake now

More comment on HST referendum aftermath

To the Editor:

In the matter of the recent defeat of the HST, I feel we don’t need another election right now. What I do want is the Liberals to acknowledge they just got “spanked” for deceiving the “boss” -the very ones who elected them.

Do not try to act like nothing happened or that the “great unwashed” don’t know what is good for them! Let it be known that we want leaders to work for us who are honest and will follow through on promises made.

You just woke up the “boss” and now you are under surveillance all the time. Shape up or we will “ship” you out. Take this as a warning meant for all the political parties that lying to us will not be tolerated any more!

Thank you,


Chris Gilmore, Logan Lake
