Save Canada money, remove redundant MPs

Editor, The News:

Re: ‘CPP premiums, payouts won’t change’; Postal workers protest at MP’s office (The News, Dec. 18).

I read with amusement that our local MP, Randy Kamp, got little feedback from people regarding either the postal or proposed CPP changes.

Of course, there are few people who contact Mr. Kamp  because most local citizens don’t expect him to do anything except read from the Conservatives’ script.

I can’t help but wonder how much Canada could save by declaring many of the MPs redundant without significantly affecting the governance of Canada.
