Politicians leading Canada down the wrong path

This country has so much poverty and homelessness

I know there must be many people like myself in Canada who are asking some questions about our politicians and the way they are governing us.

Since Canada belongs to a group of eight leading nations in the world, why is it that we have so much poverty and homelessness among the population in Canada? I am sure that our politicians know that after the taxes, the only growing industry in todays Canada is the food banks and homeless shelters. Provincially the minimum wages hover around $10.50 an hour while Statistics Canada informs us that the living wage is around $18.50 an hour. On top of that, our unemployment rate for years has been six to seven per cent. These figures I have states leads me to a conclusion that no matter which political party we vote into power, the results will continue to be same – more B.S. only in a different package.

I have a strong suspicion that our Fathers of Federation are shaking their collective heads in wonder of the turn that took place about 45 to 50 years ago in Canadian politics.

Since I don’t claim to be a rocket scientist and don’t have any other advise except grin and bare it, maybe there is someone out there who might have a solution for our future.
