In a recent letter to the editor, Leon Benoit, MP Vegreville-Wainwright, was disputing comments about the job situation. Mr. Benoit used the phrase “job creation” several times as in “We’re proud to announce the creation of 36,000 jobs for Canadian youth through the program”. I would like to invite Mr. Benoit to return to his Reform Party principles of small government. The truth and reality regarding jobs and government is that governments destroy jobs. Any money that a government puts into jobs came from the private sector along with more money to run through a wasteful, inefficient bureaucracy. Taxation destroys more jobs than governments can try to replace. Governments cannot compete with the private sector in job creation.
