From Colin Miles
I think the arts and culture and non-profit sector in BC has been under siege and is so relieved to have some resolution of the gaming revenues issue that it has lost its sense of outrage.
Although the Triplett Report has much value, I was disappointed he rejected the option of allotting a percentage of gaming revenues to charities. A frozen reduced and capped amount is little to celebrate.
We are underwhelmed and being too polite about the government response, I think
I hope others will respond to Pete McMartin’s insightful column
The non-profit sector and all it accomplishes is too important to be demeaned this way. We can be respectful of public servants but this is a matter of justice and we need to tell them their solution is just not good enough. My two cent’s worth.
I am pleased the SUN printed my letter but they changed my words from “billions” to “millions”.
If someone wants to take it from here we might coin the term the “two billion dollar theft.”
