Letter: I make my donation to Nepal when I pay my taxes

I always hear about how much money we taxpayers are sending to countries in need but never hear how much others are sending.

To the editor:

If I were Prime Minister Harper and other nations were complaining about the aid we sent and/or are going to send to Nepal, I would pull all offers of help and not even say sorry.

I always hear about how much money we taxpayers are sending to countries in need but never hear how much others are sending. Perhaps the papers could say “Canada is sending $5 million, the USA is sending la ti da and the Germans are sending x dollars.” But no, we only hear what Canada is sending and how others are complaining that we are not sending enough.

Lastly, one of the politicians says that even though the Canadian government is sending $5 million and other support Canadian citizens should donate what they can. I already have, by the government using my tax dollars.

Sorry, that was not lastly. This is: How many of the Canadians that need rescuing came to Canada to get citizenship then go back there so that if anything went wrong they could say “I’m Canadian save me.”

Just asking.
