NOV. 28 LETTER: B.C. Liberals’ way not the way to run government

You can't run a peanut stand if you are only open 44 days a year and that is all the B.C. legislature has sat this year.

Editor:

You cannot run a peanut stand if you are only open 44 days a year.  Yet, that is all the B.C. legislature has sat this year. Look at the HST.  It was voted down in August 2011, yet, because the B.C. legislature is not sitting, the Liberals, under Christy Clark, will not eliminate it until April 2013.

The HST drives up the costs for thousands of goods and services and families and small businesses are suffering as a result of this awful tax.

The child poverty rate, according to Statistics Canada, is the highest in Canada for six years in a row.  It has been eroded by 11 years of B.C. liberal government, first under Gordon Campbell and now Christy Clark. B.C. has now had four consecutive deficits in a row, including the biggest deficits this province has ever seen. When this Liberal government took power in 2001, it pledged to “outlaw” red ink from the province’s books forever. That is no way to run a government.
