When’s that election anyway?

A Terrace resident eagerly awaits a chance to vote in come change — but sees a shortage of options to do so.

Dear Sir:

Hmmmm….Let’s see now.

The BC Liberals did not listen to anyone when it came to the HST. Then they had to backtrack with a referendum.

That kind of leadership has left BC with a huge debt of liability to the federal government who is controlled by the federal Conservative Party.

Leadership has been largely absent in the missing women’s Inquiry, which should be a no brainer for our Family First champion.

Hmmmm….the Union of BC Municipalities passed motions supporting the opposition to oil pipelines and an oil tanker ban.

Traditionally the BC Liberals have taken their cue from the AGM of Union BC Municipalities.

Yet Premier Christy Clark’s Minister of Energy and Mines has taken to criticizing local leadership for taking a position against Northern Gateway which according to the conservatives will be their national interest decision anyway.

Now the Premier’s Office is filled with prominent former federal Conservative government advisors and Enbridge consultants.

To be fair the NDP opposition, especially our current Skeena MLA, who recently jumped on the economic  development bandwagon, have been equally anemic.

Aboriginal relations, especially in treaty negotiations and crown corporations, have maintained the Neolithic dogma of Indian Affairs.

So what do we have to look forward to in the next election?

Steve Wilson,

Terrace, BC
