Liberals have discovered formula for success

Dear editor,

Another election and another victory!

Dear editor,

Another election and another victory!

At this rate the BC Liberals will become the equivalent of the Alberta Conservatives: a political dynasty! Freedom and enterprise have once again conquered the backwardness of NDP Communism.

Congratulations to Christy Clark! What a leader! What a campaigner!

We were overjoyed at her spectacular come-from-behind victory. Don McRae and his entire campaign team are to be heartily congratulated for their win in the Comox Valley as well.

While the good people of B.C. have shown remarkable good sense in electing a legislature that clearly reflects the interests of the rightful owners of this province, the hopelessly misguided population of Vancouver Island has, unfortunately, mainly voted for the socialists and their tired dogma.

We can, however, take comfort in the fact that the BC Green Party increased their vote locally by over 25 per cent.

Congratulations are in order for the superb work done by Mr. Aikman and his team! This remarkable success should convince every Liberal supporter to continue to financially support the CV Green Party. Keeping their bottom line healthy is, by far, our best investment for assured victory in the Comox Valley.

As for the BC Conservatives, their incompetent political organization and truly inept candidate will be just a footnote in the annals of provincial politics once their more intelligent members realize that the only way is the BC Liberal Party way.

Congratulations once more to Premier Clark and Don McRae! On to victory in 2017!

R. Williams,
