KAMLOOPS — In a recent column on the provincial government’s not so transparent tax system, there was a comment from a reader that drew my attention. He asked, “Who is listening? Do people really care?”
In general, I believe governments have operated on the principle that voters pretty much don’t listen, don’t remember and don’t care. What other explanation can be given for government’s blatant disregard of their taxpayers' interests while happily taking care of their own self-interests?
