In the 90’s
Here on a CBC news article, someone posted the following:
“Last time I checked, we’d all be in very rough shape without “big business”. Remember the ’90’s?”
In the 90’s we weren’t bombarded with product placement or brand advertising at every turn. In the 90’s Canada was still a nation of peace keepers. In the 90’s we didn’t live in the shadow of terror. In the 90’s the cold war ended. In the 90’s the BC public still owned the utilities and the rail lines. In the 90’s we didn’t have the lowest corporate taxes in the g8. In the 90’s we worked to heal the hole in the Ozone. In the 90’s our hospitals had enough beds for their patients. In the 90’s our children had reasonable class sizes and special needs students received the assistance they needed with properly funded programs. In the 90’s our arts and culture were adequately funded. In the 90’s tuition rates were still frozen. In the 90’s 13 year old children couldn’t be exploited for $6 an hour, the youngest of any developed nation. In the 90’s reality television hadn’t yet replaced educational programming.
The 90’s were great!
