DENTAL PLAN WITHOUT DENTISTS

Article content

The prime minister’s universal dental plan is not so universal. Very few dentists have signed on to deliver the plan. You have to question why this Liberal-NDP program would be launched without checking to see if there was any support from dentists first.

You would even think that if only the “Liberal dentists” supported the program there would be at least minimal support to successfully launch the program. Are there no Liberal dentists in Canada? Or is it like the ArriveCAN app, so poorly designed by a dysfunctional Liberal government that even Liberal dentists don’t want to touch it with a 10-ft. pole?

The only conclusion that Canadians must have is that this is another Trudeau government screwup that you can add to the long list of screwups.

ONLY TAXPAYERS GETTING BURNED

Justin Trudeau says Pierre Poilievre would rather see the country burn than face climate change.

The only people getting burned are the Canadian taxpayers paying a carbon tax so Trudeau can throw money away on his pet projects and give our tax dollars away around the world like it’s his personal piggy bank when we have real Canadian issues that require our tax dollars, such as health-care funding, etc.

KUDOS FOR REFUSING REQUEST

Re: Ottawa rejects Toronto’s request to decriminalize drug possession, online, May 17

Kudos to the Trudeau government for finally coming to its senses about decriminalizing drugs. Oregon was the first U.S. state to experiment with this, only to find overdose deaths drastically increased. British Columbia ignored Oregon and decriminalized all drugs.

B.C., which already had the highest number of drug overdose deaths in Canada, found after the decriminalization experience that overdose drug deaths increased.

The political left has to realize safe injection sites and decriminalization are not a viable solutions to drug addiction. Weaning addicts off drugs via treatment not only will make their lives better and longer, but will also take pressure off the ailing health-care system.
