MPs just spend and waste
Regarding the Dec. 15 article “Surrey MP third-highest spender in B.C.”:
Nina Grewal says leaflets are to blame.
My daughter received three separate invitations for a Christmas open house.
All were postmarked Dec. 1 within nine minutes of each other.
If Nina knows this is happening maybe someone should be checking this out instead of wasting our tax dollars. Do we not pay them to do their job correctly?

The season of giving (to MPs)
Are we fortunate to have local politicians like MPs Nina Grewal and Russ Hiebert representing us in Ottawa?
Two years ago, Russ Hiebert helped the taxpayer give, by receiving the largest MP expense account in B.C.
This year is Nina Grewal’s turn to be number three.
Understanding the meaning of the saying “it is more blessed to give than to receive” is special at this time of year.
Thanks to both of you for creating the opportunity for each citizen to give.

Use your own money, Nina, not mine
Concerning MPs’ expenses, it would be much easier to determine if an MP was stepping over the line in their spending if we had a breakdown of their common expenses.
Nina Grewal may live in Western Canada, but it is hard to believe that the $110,626 she spent, more than the average Canadian MP, is because of travel.
I would also feel much better if the ad she placed of her Christmas wish on page 13 of the Leader came out of her personal bank account and not mine.
