Editorial: The Paul Martin government and his men in charge of spending taxpayers' money are all of a sudden amazed there is over a billion dollars missing with nothing to show for it. This PM used to be Canada's finance minister. How come a sum of money this large didn't draw anyone's attention until it was too late? The reason was Martin wanted to be the PM first. Now he is so puzzled about the missing bucks, but he promised to get to the bottom of this shortage of cash, "Pronto"! We'll read about it but how can you trust what he finds out? None of these jokers in our government upper crust can be trusted. They have proved it time and time again. A lot of these missing bucks are dividends paid to Quebec's corporations to keep them in line so they won't bring up separation rights from Canada. A form of "blackmail" so to speak. And speaking of lost bucks, try the gun registry program put forward by the Chretien government. It was originally figured to cost our government $2 million. So far it has cost $1 billion. These jokers in charge are terrible at mathematics. And before this program is done, add another billion dollars. Sounds like Canada could use a change of government. There is an election coming pretty soon. Give it some thought. Ð Steve Person
