Now that my life is getting going
I know there’s no pain in you knowing
Thanks to the people who kept on showing,
No matter how far you are, there’s room for growing.
Rachel, Victor, and Anthony
thank you all for helping me,
it’s appreciated greatly, and rightfully so,
without you guys, I’d still be in that hole.
I want to thank the Salvation Army for getting me into the reading program. I have been in the program for 4 months. I have learnt a lot. It has lifted my spirits and confidence. I get along with everybody. They are all friendly people. It is amazing that at 52 years old I am learning to read.
It is a wonderful experience!
Who does politics protect? It is supposed to protect the people but does it? In some situations when trouble arises in politics it’s the people who sometimes suffer the consequences of the politicians’ actions.
A good example of politics not benefiting people is the provincial government of Nova Scotia giving the oil refinery a tax break. The Imperial Oil refinery in Dartmouth will save $3 million in tax money. As a result, the people of Halifax will have to pay the deficit. The municipal government led by Peter Kelly is upset due to the fact that the people are left holding the bag. In the Daily News paper Mr. Kelly said, “It is a disappointment...These are companies making billions of dollars in profit. A phasing out of the tax break certainly would be appreciated.”
