"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

It's Not That Complicated

KA-NON has left a new comment on your post "INCOMPREHENSIBLE INOMPETENCE": 

"Poople (sic) bringing in revenue to pay the exorbitant increases in costs of particular government service are shamelessly short-changed"

Evelyn, are you arguing that the (government monopoly) LCBO store managers should be paid more based on their (exclusive) sales amounts, on the premise that their efforts create the funding for other 
Social Services.

Welcome back Ka-non. I have missed you.

No, I am not making such a convoluted argument.,I am simply saying people  who work for the government should be treated fairly by their government. 

For purely political advantage. this government and others ,have catered  solely and shamelessly to associations with the greatest clout and visibility at the expense of all others.

Public service employees .should be treated equally. They are not.

As a consequence, in certain sectors government is brought into disrepute.

People lose respect  for the principle of public integrity.

When that's gone...what's left.

How hard it is to win  back? Can it be done?

Wynne is on a losing streak. She is afraid to tackle the LCBO but has nurses & teachers self destructing on her watch.

20:52 - we'll be the losers. Gotta love this new pension plan they have in the works. We'll be paying into this "pension" farce and nobody will be able to collect a dime for the next 20+ yrs. I hear that those WSIB crooks will be running this great program. Yup... the same crooks that are in 10+billion debt right now. I'm sure they'll take great care of this program.
