Penticton Western News letters to the editor.

Letter: New leader is disappointing

Looks like we’re back to the same old politics

Very disappointing to hear the new leader of the B.C. Liberal party publicly announce that it was the Liberals’ job in the legislature to drive a wedge between the two governing parties.

Looks like we’re back to the same old politics where working for the good of the province is secondary to scoring brownie points for their own party and promoting their own political agenda.

On another note, I am visiting Central Alberta at present (and missing my wife’s birthday) where it isn’t the best time to brag about being from B.C. I don’t agree with the pipeline, but a lot of people in this area were counting on it for jobs and business.
