In response to a recent editorial in our local news paper entitled “We need a martyr for N.B.” Truer words were never spoken. The last paragraph states, who will be that person? Who has the guts to save New Brunswick? Will NB politics continue to remain a politically correct old boys club?
Thus far the silence has been deafening.
This task would take an intelligent strong willed individual, either male or female with the backbone to stand before us New Brunswick citizens “tax payers” and firmly denounce the present political situation and what desperately needs changing to better serve all citizens of this province.
One of these changes must include a drastic reduction on the annual spending of millions of tax dollars on duplication and segregation. This is not the 1960s south and it’s time to move forward with the rest of Canada and the world.
We are now witnessing millions being spent on prime time TV commercials promoting Dialogue on the benefits of two official languages, yet our elected representatives are banned from even discussing the issue.
Discussion will get little or no results. The alternative is to get out to the general public and on the steps of the legislature with the message “we demand change”.
If two “forced” languages are so beneficial to the province why are business not clamoring to locate here creating the thousands of jobs needed to keep our citizens from migrating to western Canada and abroad to find meaningful employment?
If this savior of NB comes forth they will undoubtedly receive overwhelming support. Action springs not from thought, but from a readiness for responsibility.
The question remains, “who has the guts to save N.B.?”
