HPO Sponsorship Questioned...

Sponsorship Questioned - published May 20, 2010

The Homeowner Protection Office, and what little it did for homeowners, has been completely dismantled by Rich Coleman and his cronies. No-interest loans and PST rebates for leaky condo owners have ceased, and the costs to these victims will soon be increasing due to the HST.

So while leaky condo owners, or any homeowners for that matter, don’t get one red cent for homeowner protection from the province, the HPO is now sponsoring the very industry responsible for leaky condos and other sub-standard building. This sponsorship continues with heartiness.

This is of course one of the many ongoing ways that the largest segment of donors to political re-election campaigns get paid back, and a serious case of “don’t cut off the hand that feeds you.”

John,

I hear you. What's the alternative to the Liberals? Seems we're alaways voting people out. What's the alternative?

I wish I knew Terry. It seems they're all on the take and this is bothersome.

We need a party that will focus on core services that protect the public. These core services should always be the priorities for any party. Everything else is secondary and while it might help politicians get re-elected, it adds little value for taxpayers.
