Justin Trudeau has given $172 million of taxpayer money to help save 75 resident killer whales (orcas). That's very commendable and all environmentalists wet their pants in excitement and shedding tears of joy, whilst in grocery stores pensioners are shedding tears of despair as they can no longer afford to buy the products listed in the new Canada Food Guide.
I have personally seen elderly ladies in tears because they are ashamed and humiliated at having to put fresh fruits and vegetables aside in order to be able to purchase the other food stuffs required to feed themselves and their elderly, failing husbands. These are Canadians who have worked hard all their lives to support Canada and its endeavours while Mr. Trudeau, through your radicalized visions, are prepared to abandon these elderly Canadians through a carbon tax that will further increase the cost of everything that provides them with the necessities of a decent life.
Handing over $172 million to environmental groups to protect 75 orcas from the ravages of returning pink salmon is nothing short of a kick in the crotch to Canada's elderly. I realize that in the scope of government spending $172 million is a mere pittance, but to hard-pressed seniors it says, in the minds of this government, seniors do not have the value of 75 well-publicized killer whales. You might just as well extend your middle finger to show your contempt for their lifetime efforts supporting the nation.
