I am told over and over again that I reside in a democratic country.
When I witness the remuneration such as salaries, benefits and expenses paid to, but not earned, by MPs, MLAs and senators and I have not been given the right to vote on this issue, I wonder about that democracy.
The actions of these individuals, when the median wage for Canadians is about $44,000, is breathtaking, especially their attitude towards unions, minimum wages and teachers.
They love to take but refuse to honour and reward the people who unfortunately put them into their positions.
Does democracy still exist when people find out their assets have been conscripted by individuals that do not care about other individuals?
