“accountability”

Subject: I’m surprised

November-05-08
Dear Member of Parliament for *,*,
Not that Barak Obama won the the U.S. presidential election since it was the Democrats turn to win but that this Conservative government of Canada has let a golden opportunity to fillet the Liberals and return to Canadian tax payers their E.I.surplus.
I can not understand how this could happen?
This “fifty seven billion dollar E.I. Surplus” would sure be nice for tax payers and the workers and even the government to have in their back pocket at a time like this.
Could you please explain to me in writing how this government can do nothing and has done nothing to return Canada’s 57 billion dollar E.I. surplus to Canadians or did take no action to hold those responsible for “spending” this “rainy day” account and that was supposed to have been “capped at twenty billion dollars” ?
Makes no sense to me why or how our government could let this happen?
Do nothing for working people and wonder why they don’t vote for you or are being “apathetic” toward voting?
What goes around comes around?
Sincerely Yours,

P.S. I did receive a letter from the Minister of Finance any yourself explaining some new bureaucracy being created to babysit the HRDC but I read nothing to explain how the surplus which should now be treated as a criminal theft as far as I’m concerned was to be recovered. Harper is being all talk about “accountability” but seems quite useless when it comes to accounting.

What (EI) Surplus?

October 17, 2008
Dear Member of Parliament for * -*, *, * *
The Conservative finance minister did a decent job considering the previous years of mismanagement of Canada’s finance’s. Canada’s HRDC reportedly had a “fifty seven billion dollar E.I. surplus” that seems to not have been accounted for. Where is this gigantic “surplus” that belongs to Canadian employee’s and employer’s and was supposed to be “capped” at “twenty billion dollars” by Paul Martin a previous finance minister. Did the honourable Ralph Goodale MP do something that we should know about? Rumour has it the surplus was “SPENT” on “other programs” or the “national debt”? The E.I. surplus “twenty billion dollars”, belongs to and should be returned to the HRDC (lump sum, plus interest). The excess surplus (thirty”plus” billion reported), should be returned to those who own and overpaid by lump-sum (all). Even if the country has to go into debt to do so. “Bad Liberals”, the economy- “be damned”. This government needs to “pull-out the stops” to get the “E.I. surplus” back for the tax payers of this country and this finance minister should “pay the price” for not having done so already. Do my member of parliament think this government or any other government in Canada should steal a “fifty seven billion dollars” “rainy day” savings account without any accountability to anyone? I your like me probably not. Flaherty must pay the price for failing to take action to retrieve this “spent”, (I would say stolen), EI surplus? Where is the “Accountability” for those who have been robbed of they’re “rainy day” E.I. savings account? Sincerely Yours,

P.S.Fifty seven billion dollars is allot more important than any “Free” trade with Europe or France and if you asked me there should be no agreements with Europe. The EU is a big pathetic financial suck-hole even bigger than the U.S. Get the EI surplus back first, please!
One thing seems certain given the global economic turmoil buffeting Canada: Harper won’t be listening to idle whispers that it’s time to replace Finance Minister Jim Flaherty when he names the new cabinet sometime around Oct. 27.

Does the EU have Canada’s E.I.?

October 15, 2008
Dear *, Member of Parliament for *-*, *,
Curious the prime minister should be ‘jetting off’ to Europe for trade talks with the president of France at a time in this country when the Governor General should likely be calling out Canada’s Armed Forces against the Francophone Gilles Duceppe MP and the seditious Bloc Quebecois regional, criminal, race, party, or resigning her position?
Does the E.U. have Canada’s E.I., because I really can’t imagine any trade talks that could take precedent over returning Canada’s ‘missing 54 billion dollar E.I. surplus’ or this Franco- “Quebecois”/”crises”.
Do we run off and forget the people of this country in order to sign some more useless some would even say “stupid”, Free-Trade deals, with a bunch of bankrupt European misfits?

“I dooon’t think so”.
Sincerely Yours,

45 million in Arts cuts and what of the “E.I. surplus”?

September 24, 2008
Dear the Minister of Finance the Honourable Jim Flaherty MP,
The Honourable Paul Martin as the Minister of Finance of Canada changed the name of Unemployment Insurance to Employment Insurance and placed a “twenty billion dollar cap” on the intended surplus collected from workers to be used as a “rainy day fund”.
Well there has been no “rainy day” in unemployment in this country since and the surplus as of December 03, 2007 is reported to be at fifty four billion.
OTTAWA–’Canada’s employment insurance “surplus” stands at $54 billion – …….’
I noticed there is a supreme court case now concerning the E.I. surplus, some unions are suing to get these tax funds returned to the rightful owners.
I heard Jack Layton MP and Stephen Harper talking about the E.I. surplus in the House of Commons, the prime minister said that “the Liberals spent the E.I. surplus ten years ago”.
“Spent ten years ago” and yet the Toronto Star is reporting there is a fifty four billion dollar surplus in the account as of December 03, 2007.
My point is, someone should have some questions to answer concerning this “spent” E.I. surplus.
My guess is this Minister of Finance has the most answering to do and since I have heard nothing of this “spent” E.I. surplus in the media, who is asking the questions, the Liberal opposition or the Bloc Quebecois or the NDP? I don’t hear them.
Nobody, including the present Minister of Finance are taking the accountable steps to insure that the over-surplus, the amount over the capped twenty billion, is returned to those who have overpaid.
There should be no more collection of E.I. premiums in this country until the “spent” surplus is collected and those who “spent” the money held “accountable”.
I noticed you are not taking any steps to collect the “54 billion dollar E.I surplus” for Canadians or hold the Liberals “accountable” and either has any of the opposition in the house of commons.
That is not a very accountable government if you asked me.
Why do “we” not fight to get this “spent” ( really stolen) E.I. surplus returned to Canada’s workers and I would add make some political gains doing so?
This is just more of the same-old, same-old, back-room politics, that in my opinion is a just cause for a criminal investigation and a politician or two or three to go to jail.
Is this some kind of joke, the government steals the fifty billion dollar surplus that is supposed to be “capped at twenty billion dollars” in the first place and for “a rainy day” and no one has any thing to say about that, wow?
That is what happens when the robbers guard the bank, eh, Jack Layton?
I know the Liberals and NDP and the Bloc Quebecois have spent two days screaming on television over 45 million dollars in (pretend) cuts to Arts and Culture, give me a BREAK!
54 billion of tax payers money gets “spent” and nobody even takes notice or a second look?

I really do have to question the “loyalty” of Canada’s government and opposition parties.
Sincerely yours,
