MLA must not remain silent about B.C.’s position on deal with China

Dear editor,

As a constituent of MLA Don McRae, I am confounded as to his silence and lack of response on a non-partisan and urgent matter.

Dear editor,

As a constituent of MLA Don McRae and former Psych 11 student of his, I am utterly confounded as to his silence and lack of response on a non-partisan and urgent matter.

I urge him to please use his position as MLA for our area to oppose the Canada-China FIPPA treaty — do whatever he needs to do — let Christy Clark know he won’t stand for her standing by when any of the provinces’ premiers could interfere and stop this deal.

It is binding internationally for up to 31 years even though unconstitutional and therefore illegal in Canada, and which affects federal, provincial and municipal governments’ ability to make sovereign decisions and could cost taxpayers billions of dollars in secret extrajudicial lawsuits.

If she doesn’t want to hear it, cross the floor! Step down! Why do Canadian politicians these days seem to be so utterly hypnotized into the herd mentality? I think it’s time for mass defections from the federal Conservatives and their ideological sister party, the BC Liberals.

Any politician who fails to make a last stand for Canadian sovereignty in the coming week will likely be sunk in upcoming elections, robocalls and illegal election spending notwithstanding.

I apologize for my tone but I have strange feeling that there is no one listening on the other end anyhow, so what the heck!

Claire Gilmore,

Cumberland
