Letter: Now is not the time for a half billion dollar birthday bash

Editor: Canada’s federal debt is $636,000,000 and rising.

So what’s another half billion dollars for a birthday party for Canada on July 1 this year.

Canada has about 30,000 homeless people.

Dividing the half billion price tag for the birthday party gives $16,666 per homeless person. That would build shelters for a lot of Canadians. Our tax dollars would be much better spent.
