Penticton Western News letters to the editor.

Letter: We need the truth

We keep hearing B.C. Hydro and ICBC complaining about their lack of money

We keep hearing B.C. Hydro and ICBC complaining about their lack of money and how they must keep raising rates.

Now, if I remember the news reports, the previous government was for the last few years taking over a billion dollars per year out of B.C. Hydro and $600 million out of ICBC per year and putting that into general revenue (balancing their books). So that must mean that the current government is still practicing this taxation without representation or even increasing it for these cash shortages to be happening and these increases to be needed.

How about some truth somewhere just once; but it gets harder to believe anything no matter which pig is at the trough.
