LETTERS: Harper had his chance

Harper has had his chance. Please do not give him another four years. That truly would be insane.

My favourite definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

That’s why I have to shake my head when Harper, “the great economist,” tells us: “We have a plan and it’s working. Now is not the time to change governments.”

Harper has been in power for nearly 10 years. The “plan” is glaringly not working (except in Harper’s propaganda factory). He didn’t see the 2008 recession coming and he’s in denial about the recession we’re in right now.

If the economy was doing well would Penticton city council be so desperate as to give away park land just to bring in a few dollars?

Harper has had his chance. Please do not give him another four years. That truly would be insane.
