Can’t we just elect ‘none of the above’?
Wayne Clark’s letter of Jan. 1 blames the B.C. Liberals with a lot of things, and while not a particular Liberal fan, I’m sure the current “most likely” alternative is not likely to fare much better in the long-term planning and fiscal management department.
Remember, Adrian Dix was in the Glen Clark government that brought you the $454-million fast ferries, something we all will continue to pay for years to come.
The old Pattullo Bridge was built by a Liberal government though, so at least in 1936 the Liberals thought ahead.
Many of the other things we take for granted today, however, were brought to us by the long-gone Social Credit.
The George Massey Tunnel, Alex Fraser Bridge, Expo ’86 and the real estate development it spurred, the first SkyTrains… all Socred legacies, with the last three all derided at the time by the NDP. They were against the Olympics too, weren’t they?
I don’t see what other option we have in this province at the moment; can we vote “none of the above” and start again?
