Who can argue against a heroes fund?
But, it's kind of sad that the relatives of the four slain mounties most likely won't be getting the $250,000 that this plan retroactively offers. It seems almost unkind of the Liberals to dangle this in front of these particular families, given the Liberals' place in the polls, and the unlikelihood that they will be able to make good on the proposal.
The decent thing would have been for them to have put this on the back burner, and then just quietly implement it, should they form the government.
Perhaps the Liberal Party will see fit to donate $250,000 to each to these families, should they not be returned to power, as now appears likely.
