Editor: Wes Sheridan is complaining P.E.I. is short $113 million for health care. Who cares? P.E.I. received more in equalization payments then it should have and Wes Sheridan has been running deficits. The minister of education was supposed to cut the education budget but mostly played musical chairs sending people to other government departments instead of slashing jobs.
More people left P.E.I. in 2012 and all the Ghiz government could do was blame the federal government. The province hasn't done anything to improve wages or provide year round employment so the more people that leave the less federal money for P.E.I. This province has scored on the bottom of PISA scores which contributes to low wages and food insecurity but the minister of education tells people to wait a decade.
The public civil service is outraged at government cutting pensions. P.E.I. spends just under $113 million in interest payments on deficits to pay the greed of the Public Service.
P.E.I. received a "D" rating for delivery of health care. Who cares if the rest of Canada doesn't listen to P.E.I. I don't. P.E.I. pays the lowest weekly wages in Canada and now the less people we have the less money we get.
