To the Editor,
Please help stop this western and NATO agenda against Russia, Mr. Stephen Harper. I also wonder why this Conservative government supposedly gave those presently running Ukraine $220 million Canadian taxpayer dollars.
To my understanding, this government also recently gave more than $100 million to a middle eastern country.
How can the Harper Conservatives justify giving hundreds of millions of dollars to foreign countries while slashing jobs of Canadians. Jobs are being cut from Veterans Affairs, Canada Post, and the harsh new employment insurance rules.
I believe the Harper Conservatives should be helping the people in the Maritimes instead of giving millions to foreign governments.
I am very disappointed with the Conservatives trying to punish Russia with threats and sanctions. I believe this stance will set trade relations back decades for Canada.
Please stop this agenda as Canada was a peacemaker in this world at one time, what happened?
Stop trying to box Russia into a corner and take into account their very real concerns that should be respected by western nations.
