Give Clark, Liberals another chance in B.C.

Dear editor,

I don’t think we should throw the baby out with the bathwater when we vote in the upcoming provincial election.

Dear editor,

I don’t think we should throw the baby out with the bathwater when we vote in the upcoming provincial election.

We have before us three bad examples of NDP governance, namely Barrett, Harcourt and Clarke, the latter two of Casinogate and fast ferry fame.

I cringed when I heard Mr. Dix state he’d like to take over the BC Ferries. The aluminum ones were eventually sold for pennies on the dollar; what would he get for our German-built ships?

The Liberals were not perfect in their governance, but who is?

I think Christy Clark and her cabinet are making an honest effort to bring B.C.’s finances under control and believe she should be given a full term as premier to work her ideas out. The election of a NDP government is no foregone conclusion.

Norm Blondel,

Courtenay
