I would like to offer my humble opinion on the scandal in Ottawa involving some of our senators.
We should have invited them to the Beacon Community Services Volunteer Appreciation lunch on May 31 at the Shoal Centre in Sidney. Here they would have had an opportunity to meet 200 of the 512 volunteers. Many of these valuable citizens have serious health issues themselves but still offer their services to help others in need. Some have volunteered for as long as 32 years. That is longer than a lot of working careers.
Imagine if all these people were to have expense accounts.
I’m appalled that these senators, who are paid from our tax dollars, are so selfish. They care not for the less fortunate, hard working people who built and are building this country.
On the other hand, who would pay for the airfare to bring them here?
The lunch was free.
