FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
OTTAWA: Gerald Soroka, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead, made a statement in the House of Commons calling on the government to address the needs of constituents who are feeling isolated and have financial, emotional and physical hardships.
MP Soroka stated, “I believe we’re at a pivotal point in our society, now more than ever. Many people have told me they are concerned and feeling hopeless about the future, their jobs, the economy and debt.”
“I’ve had conversations about dictatorship, socialism, communism and whether we still have a democratic society because they believe they have lost their freedoms and rights.”
“I’ve been asked why, at a time when they can lose their freedoms that their father or grandfather had fought for. The conversations I had were not only about Canada’s debt but that of other countries around the world. They want to know the plan and how society is going to exist when future generations will have to bear these huge financial burdens.” MP Soroka concluded.
