Remember history

I’m not old enough to remember the 1990s. But I know many adults who do remember that time and how badly the NDP mismanaged the provincial economy.

They also remember how Adrian Dix was fired as Glen Clark’s top aide after it was discovered he had forged a memo and then lied about it to the RCMP.

What surprises me is that so many people my age are unaware of what went on in B.C. during the 1990s. That lack of awareness could have devastating consequences for this province, and for unwary young people like myself, if the NDP is elected to ruin the province all over again.

Failing to learn the lessons of the recent past will doom us to the same consequences suffered in the 1990s if we do not wake up and heed the warning signs that are there to be seen.
