To the Editor,
The question is, who pays and who benefits?
In the Liberal plan, the poor and the lower middle class pay and the wealthy and corporations benefit. In the New Democratic Party plan, the wealthy and corporate pay more to support a system where all of us benefit.
This NDP plan is based on a Christian principal, namely, “We are out brother’s and sister’s keepers.”
I am not saying that all rich people and all corporations are bad and do no good in our society, but in this dog-eat-dog capitalist world of today, we need government to regulate and protect the interests of the many who are essentially powerless in this system.
The NDP is much more likely to play this role than Andrew Wilkinson’s Liberals who are much more in the pockets of big businesses from whence their money and support comes.
Putting Wilkinson’s Liberals back in power this October would be akin to putting the fox in the hen house, as was aptly demonstrated during the sixteen years of the previous Liberal administration.
