Shameful waste

Dear sir:
What a shameful waste of taxpayers’ money!
By blocking passage of the Family Medical Leave bill just as the Ontario legislature was preparing to recess for the summer, the NDP cost Ontario taxpayers more than $100,000.
The bill was passed after recalling all MPPs to vote in a special 10-minute session at Queen’s Park.
The NDP originally blocked the Family Medical Leave bill, which gives job protection to Ontario workers who need to take unpaid time off to care for a sick or dying relative.
The reason Howard Hampton and the NDP stalled this initiative—they wanted more money from the Ontario government so they can send taxpayers more junk mail.
Give me a break! Mr. Hampton, stop wasting taxpayers’ time and money and start working to represent the taxpayers of your riding.
