When I opened the Aug. 22 edition of the Optimist and saw the Carla Qualtrough advertisement, I almost tossed up my breakfast; fortunately I am a Conservative and was able to control my inner feelings.
Several questions arise from reading [scowling?] this advertisement. First, her repetitious use of the word “our” as in “our government.” Just whose government is ours?
So, let’s look and see if we can determine just who this “our” is that, according to the advertisement, has been so kind and generous and loving to residents of Delta. Moreover, where did “our” come up with the money to pay for and support all these marvelous doings?
There are other points that need addressing and looking at but that will put me in conflict with the rule of maximum number of words per letter. Therefore I will end with these five words – a large dose of hyperbole - writ large with taxpayers’ money.
Why not just present it as it is -- a blatant Liberal Party of Canada pre-election ‘grabber’ advertisement.
