I was struck by the disparity in tone between the MLA and MP reports in the Dec. 14 edition of the Vernon Morning Star.
Greg Kyllo took the opportunity to highlight the efforts of local organizations who help make life better for those in need. He also encouraged all of us to consider what, as individuals, we could do to improve the lives of those around us. l. In contrast, Mel Arnold preferred to use his opportunity to regurgitate partisan rhetoric. His main concern is that he believes that future generations will have to higher taxes.
Don’t worry Mr. Arnold, the future generation will have to deal with much bigger issues, like surviving the drastic effects of climate change. The negative effects of which would be exacerbated by your parity’s anti-carbon tax stance and climate-change denying attitudes.
