A new day in politics

I have voted for the last time as my vote made no difference whatsoever

May 15, 2013 had me awakening to a failed new dawn of provincial politics. I sincerely hope just for once that all the promises made can breathe much-needed fresh air, transparency, honesty and hope into the scarred lungs of the one we all love, Beautiful British Columbia.

Penticton’s Dan Ashton and his successful bid to become a new MLA placed Penticton voters between a rock and a hard place.

A decision had to be made to get rid of Danny, who did to Pentictonites what a pigeon does to a statue, or reward him like Gordon Campbell and send him off to greenback pastures with the backdrop being the pot of gold at the end of the porko rainbow.

However, I won’t hold my breath as I have seen porko flies change many times and the pile at the piggery got bigger and bigger.

I have voted for the last time as my vote made no difference whatsoever.
