A BOUGHEN TO PICK
I’m really tired of Conservative MP Ray Boughen sending me flyers telling me all the tax breaks and savings his government provides for “you and your family”. I am single. I have no one to share the rent/mortgage with, no one to share the power bill, water bill, etc with. Families who have more than one income earner, and who share the expenses of living, are not expected to pay the tax I do. WHAT IS WITH THAT!!! Tax credits for kids, child care (?), seniors, students… When do singles a break? /Anonymous
MAYBE POLITICIANS JUST DON’T REALIZE THAT SINGLES HAVE MORE TIME TO ENGAGE IN POLITICS Queen City Confidential is an open forum for Prairie Dog readers to anonymously over-share their stories and feelings. We suggest true tales of failed romance and exasperating interpersonal situations, rants about trivial pet peeves and petty injustices, constructive criticism for complete strangers or even anonymous gratitude for something nice someone did. In a pinch we’ll even print your secret messages to friends. E-mail email@example.com (type CONFIDENTIAL in the subject field). Change all the names and identifying details. Submissions must be 100-200 words long and will be edited though hopefully not much.
*QCC submissions are NOT letters to the editor. Send (signed!) praise and criticism for Prairie Dog articles (including this) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
