Letter to the editor and open letter to the prime minister:
Dear Steven Harper,
I would like to nominate myself as a candidate for the Senate. I have an MBA, own property in Ontario, support an elected Senate and am an honest person with no criminal record. I am certainly as well qualified as Nancy Green (I ski a Mount St. Louis), Pamela Wallin (I am not a Liberal appointee) and Mike Duffy (I'm in better shape than he is and will last out the eight-year term).
OK, If I can't get a seat in the senate, can I get a bailout from the losses I experienced in the stock market in general or at least, the losses due to the Conservative's change in tax policy on income trusts? You are bailing out the ABCP investors and GM workers, why not me? I am interested in your logic as to why ABCP investors, who didn't check out their investments properly, deserve to be bailed out more than I do.
I trusted the election promises of the Conservative party when I invested in income trusts so I am more deserving of a bailout. Thanks.
