Letter: Playing nice during the election

It is always nice to ask your politicians to play nice during an election

It is always nice to ask your politicians to play nice during an election, but when the B.C. Liberal Party has done so many things wrong, it is hard to say they’ve been a great party.

I follow an admittedly left-wing newsletter on-line. Here are some of the recent headlines:

*Why this election should be about corruption – When 76 per cent of citizens believe government is bought and paid for, it’s time for change

*Running on “Debt Free B.C.” slogan, Clark’s Liberals Added $10.85 billion to debt in four years

*Government has missed green job opportunity, says labour leader

*Health firings dog Clark’s first day on campaign trail

*117 Liberal falsehoods, boondoggles and scandals” — The complete list

*Why B.C. Liberals blocked usual independent review for Site C

*B.C. government undermining their work, scientists say

*Finding that B.C. government scientists don’t feel they can speak to media “shocking,” says NDP Critic

*Green platform pledges $8.5 billion in new education funding over four years

*Construction firm, also a Liberal donor, not adequately punished for worker’s death, says B.C. Fed

I think you get the idea. For more details try www.thetyee.com.
