Let me introduce myself. I’m a voter.
To be more precise, I’m a swing voter. I don’t have a political affiliation or a traditional party.
I vote for the one I think will do the best. I’m not right all the time, but I try.
This year, my main choices are the NDP and the BC Liberals.
I look at the BC Liberals and I see a recent record of outright lies, condescension, and pie-in-the-sky dreams of natural gas.
I look at the BC NDP and I see the record of their previous two terms in office. Cronyism, financial mismanagement, micromanagement of public projects to satisfy internal agendas and a current leader was in the halls of power for a fair portion of it.
As things stand right now, I can’t see myself voting for either of the main parties.
So, other parties, this is your big chance.
Impress me. Show me some substance. Show me some realistic policies. Show me you deserve a seat at the big table in Victoria.
You might get my vote and the vote of others like me. There are quite a few of us out there.
And we don’t want to hold our noses voting for either of the two big parties.
