Banning burquinis - F-35 Fighter insanity - goodbye Elizabeth May
Banning burquinis from the beach? Excellent idea.

Have we earthlings lost our minds! Canada is considering buying a squadron of F-35 fighters - each of which cost a whooping $148 million dollars. Do we realise how many people $148 million would feed? How many wind turbines we could erect? How many diseases we could cure? How many teachers we could hire? How many kids we could provide free university education for?

So please Ms. May, to paraphrase the lyrics from Bob Dylan's "The Times they are A Changin'".... "Get the heck out of the way if you aren't willing to lend a hand!"
