Attacks cut both ways

Left-wingers are quick to invoke the B.C. Rail scandal, but never ever explain what they mean

This is in response to Tom Isherwood’s letter “Ads go off track.” It appears Mr. Isherwood’s indignation at the Liberals so-called attack ads betrays his true political allegiance.

He appears to conveniently forget that on March 29, 2011 B.C.’s opposition New Democrats launched an attack ad against Christy Clark, comparing her to the province’s former premier and evoking the B.C. Rail scandal. As I recall, the ad began with a couple eating a cereal called “Christy Crunch” and went rapidly downhill from there.

Incidentally, left-wingers are quick to invoke the B.C. Rail scandal, but never ever explain what they mean. Maybe Mr. Isherwood can enlighten the rest of us? Especially when you consider the RCMP conducted a full and comprehensive investigation into the sale and found no elected individual guilty of any malfeasance.

The so-called attack ads aimed at Mr. Dix state he was the architect of B.C.’s financial malaise during the 1990s under Glen Clark, and infer that if he was premier, taxes would skyrocket, people would leave the province in droves and B.C. would again be on the slippery slope to financial ruin. One wonders how telling the truth about an individual can be classed as an attack.

Might I suggest to Mr. Isherwood that he present a more balanced point of view in the future if he wishes his letters to be given any credence?
