I object to the federal government cuts to grants to women’s and social programs. Many people in our society need a hand let down from above before they can stand on their own feet and take their places as contributing members of society. In the past election more than 60% of the electors voted for parties to the left of yours. The Conservative Party did not win the election; the Liberal Party lost it because of the sponsorship scandals. You do not have a mandate to govern as if you had a majority government.
