To quote Glavine, "They accept government assistance, yet still have money to travel. These people are abusing their neighbours' hard earned money. The goal of assistance programs is to help people out of a difficult time, not give people free money."

He emphasizes that his personal comments are not reflective of government policy. Glavine called on Nova Scotians to quit smoking, get more exercise, and eat better. Few would argue with that advice.
