Relax, we’re the government, we know what’s best for you.
How many times have you shaken your head over a new government rule that intrudes into your particular lifestyle?
We saw the farmers demonstrate when the heavy hand of government pushed the Worker’s Comp onto their land.
We’re all going to feel the government’s hand in our lives with the carbon tax.
There is not a lot of government intervention I agree with, and yet, I must admit there are things I wish they would get more involved in.
I agree with Transportation Minister Brian Mason’s proposal to require helmets for off- highway vehicles. Every year, I have the unfortunate duty of telling you about the latest people who died on an ATV. It’s especially disheartening when it’s a child.
And, for all the families who lost someone to drowning, don’t you wish the law required everyone in a boat to be wearing a life jacket?
Maybe what bothers me the most is when it takes a government law to do what common sense should already have dictated.
Let me know what rules bother you.
