We cannot afford bigger government

Dear editor,

The voters had better get out their calculators if they want to keep up with the cost of NDP promises.

Dear editor,

The voters had better get out their calculators if they want to keep up with the cost of NDP promises.

Day by day the total mounts as Dix does his Dance of the Seven Planks.

He is revealing himself as a true son of Dave Barrett and a faithful disciple of the Harcourt-Clark-Dosanjh premiership that he served in the 1990s. Bigger government, higher taxes, and even more spending is the model that the NDP is committed to.

What we have to remember, no matter how attractive the promises, is who pays the bills. We, the taxpayers do.

Can we afford bigger government? No!

Linda Evans,

Comox Valley
