Residents not receiving GST payments

Information to the public should be delivered in a honest and expedient way at all times

Folks, how come the voting public is treated like mushrooms when it comes to federal government screw ups? I am talking about the latest screw up with the GST payments.

Where I live, there are numerous folks who have not received their GST payments. Even our MP’s office didn’t have a clue why I haven’t received mine. In this age of instant communication, the news media has kept quiet about this matter.

As we get closer to a 2015 election and all kinds of promises from all the parties, I think the information to the public should be delivered in a honest and expedient way at all times.

One of our political leaders is saying in his commercials a new way of “politics” is badly needed in Canada, instead of bad mouthing each other by all our party leaders in the present system.
