Comox Valley Common Sense not beholden to any political party

Dear editor,

Recently a letter to the editor attempted to link Comox Valley Common Sense to the provincial Liberal Party.

Let me be crystal clear.

Comox Valley Common Sense (CVCS) has no connection to any political party, any big unions, any large corporation or any other organization. We receive no funding, directly or indirectly, from any political party.

We have been fortunate to have generated a great deal of support from many individuals who think the issues we are raising are important to the future of the Valley (see our website at www.votecommonsense.ca).

We believe election campaigns should be about the issues.  Instead of attacking people and organizations, as has been happening in the past week, why don’t candidates and their supporters focus on the issues?

It is particularly disappointing when writers make allegations concerning sources of funding for a particular candidate. Those kinds of allegations, whether in the form of a statement or a question, are completely inappropriate and irresponsible.

I sincerely hope those tactics will be rejected by all organizations, candidates and interested parties.

John Davis
