What’s up with ‘Cadillac socialists’ visiting Comox Valley?

Dear editor,

I saw in the local paper about the socialists invading the Comox Valley this week.

Looks like the local NDP are broke so, in desperation, they’ve invited the Communist hordes from Victoria and elsewhere to support the local Dipper candidate.

Dix and Dycke? Yeah, now that sounds like a “winning” combination!

But at a $100 a plate, it looks like the NDP are turning into what they, supposedly, despise. Looking after the elites, are we? Catering to the wealthy now?

Maybe “Cadillac socialists” have that kind of money to spend but I don’t think ordinary folks, whom they claim to represent, could afford it.

Are they selling access to their politicians to rich people? (I thought that was illegal.)

Have they turned into something like Tony Blair’s New Labour? Maybe they should call themselves BC Liberals Lite?

Instead of having two slightly different versions of the same party, we’ve got a real alternative in this province. Thank God we have the BC Conservatives to look out for the interests of the common man.
