Rest in peace Canada you are too soft

Michel Letour British Columbia

To the editor;

R.I.P. Canada you are too soft.

You raised the cost of living so high that both parents are always at work, rather than spending time with their children.

You took authority out of schools. Parents were told ‘No you can’t discipline your kids’.

Well, Canada, you shall reap what you sow, and we have lost a percentage of next generation adults as the soft approach turned them into rude, selfish, disrespectful humans who have no respect for people, property or authority!

You deemed people with terminal illnesses and some with only a few months to live…fit for work!

You allow our veterans of war to go homeless and hungry!

You stop people’s entitlement to welfare benefits thus leaving them so desperate that they commit suicide!

You bend over backwards to be politically correct, too scared to say enough is enough, in case you offend.

You put the retirement age up so people must work until they drop!

People depend on handouts and food banks, whilst we give aid to others.

Our retired generation rely on inadequate state pensions, their thanks for working hard and protecting our country!

Things need to change!

Share this if you have the guts to.
