Anti-Fortis campaign moves into 2014

I hope 2014 will bring about changes that will benefit the citizens of B.C. From the bottom of my heart I once again thank you,

It is close to Christmas and near the end of 2013, so at this time I would like to sincerely thank the Penticton Western News and of course their readers for allowing me to express my opinions whenever there is something that is bothering me, or if I believe that there is something amiss that needs to be addressed.

It is an honour and a privilege to live in a community and a country where opinions can count without reprisal from government or any others that might think that they are omnipotent.

Since the beginning of 2013 I have campaigned against Fortis, the BCUC and our politicians to right the wrongs of oppressive and hurtful electrical rates and proposed changes to the rate structure, and have been more than pleased with the support of the people.

It is too early to tell if our campaign has been successful, but at least we have let Fortis and the others know that we will not be taken advantage of without a fight. They know that we are out there and next election they will be looking over their shoulders, and just might consider those that have elected them, and fear those that have felt the insult of a rapacious monopoly.

I hope 2014 will bring about changes that will benefit the citizens of B.C. From the bottom of my heart I once again thank you,

Donald E Thorsteinson
