B.C. needs change of direction

It would be a step backward to elect anyone connected with the present government

I am 87 years old and this is the first time I have ever written a letter about politics. But I am so disgusted, disillusioned and thoroughly fed up with our present government that it hurts me to be quiet.

They have conducted themselves in an inept, backward, self-serving and morally deficient manner as to defy logic. They don’t help us, they help themselves. And to make matters worse, we have new people offering to join them to help destroy what’s left of our province.

I can’t understand how anyone with self-respect could even think about running for a party with such a despicable record. Have they sunk so low that they don’t care what people think and how many people get hurt? Do they think we believe them when they say, “This time things will be different?” That they’ll somehow change things? Tell us another one.

Must we continually reward rotten behaviour by voting for the new batch of Liberal candidates? It would be a step backward to elect anyone connected with the present government, and I know many other seniors feel the same way.
