LETTERS: Give refunds to all who pay

Editor:

Re: $40/day if strike drags on, Aug. 5.

I think it’s wonderful that the provincial government is planning to pay parents of children under 13 $40 a day to cover daycare costs for their children who may not be in school come September, due to the teachers’ strike.

But I think that money should go to every taxpayer, not just parents of young children.

After all, every taxpayer has paid for a service — education for the province’s children — that will not be delivered if the strike continues.
