In March of 2020, Canadians were made aware of a Virus that was infecting Canadians across the country. At that time we were told that measures would be taken to flatten the curve. Schools were closed, playgrounds were closed, businesses were forced to closed, and we were told we needed 3 weeks to flatten the curve. 

So here we are 10 months later and not much has changed. Many of us still have children at home being home schooled by their parents with the support of remote teachers. The media keeps pushing a paranoid message that we all have to do our part. The problem is, some of us are paying a higher price than others. Our businesses that support our family's have been shut down in Alberta for the second time this year.

Who is completely unaffected by this so called pandemic, and has suffered no financial hardship whatsoever? Every single elected government official from municipal and provincial all the way to the federal level. We have all witnessed some of these elected officials, who have a  blatant disregard for rules that they forced upon citizens. These elected officials feel the rules are not applicable to themselves as they were jetting around the globe at will.

I would like you to sign this petition to have every elected official have their pay suspended until every lockdown order is suspended. Many of these individuals make substantially more than the average Canadian income. It is time for them to feel the same financial pain that those of us are feeling that have had our livelihoods stripped away. I believe that no person, elected or not, will understand the financial and mental anguish that many Canadians are feeling without "being in the same boat" as so many politicians claim we are in.

It is time for Canadians to stand up and say enough is enough.
