If you have no responsibility for governing, you can say whatever you like, what hon Carrim nicely put as populism. Also, if all that you are concerned about given the challenges that we are faced with in our country is one province, then you know that we have no responsibility to tackle these many problems that are facing the country as a whole.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
