PETERS – All politicians are the same? Not Marg Spina

Coun. Marg Spina, second from left, during City council meeting.

IF THERE’S one opinion that seems to pervade most Canadians’ views of the various levels of government, it’s that all politicians are the same.

They all have the same basic motivation in their political careers: to take.

They take your votes, then they begin to take your tax dollars and take advantage of their entitlements.

After years of Harper-era Senate scandals about politicians bent on taking more and more, it hasn’t changed much.

  1. Yes, Marg was different. She was the one who believed me when the others didn’t. She did her homework on the concern that I brought forward.
    All I had to ask was, “Would you let your children or grandchildren play in that stuff?”
    Everything she predicted would happen, has.
    Soon will be the time of regret when the others will think, if not say, “We should have listened to Marg.”
