To the editor,

Holding two to three jobs down to make ends meet, mortgage, increased municipal taxes, increased gasoline prices, increased food costs, and everywhere one turns, increased costs in something.

We cannot just keep our heads above water, we need to breathe.

Young working families cannot make it and cannot afford to have children, so this government invites more immigrants to grow the population.

The main business now is for Premier David Eby to see that increasing carbon tax (following the federal government) damages what little headway B.C. has made over the last couple of years. Already the City of Nanaimo has proposed some horrible increases on our municipal base.

There is only so much we, as B.C. citizens, can take. How many jobs can we hold to pay for all this?

Jing Vance, Nanaimo
